This chapter describes the Mukherjea Court of 1954–6. The most senior associate judge at age sixty-three when he replaced Mahajan on 23 December 1954, Mukherjea was to have been CJI for nineteen months. But soon his health began to fail and in late 1955, he was on leave for four months. While on leave, S.R. Das served as acting CJI, and N. Chandrasekhar Aiyar returned in the retired judge capacity. Mukherjea’s declining health resulted in his resignation on 31 January 1956. The Court was at full strength when he took over and there were no retirements during his brief tenure. Had he served his full term, he would have had the opportunity to select a replacement for only Vivian Bose.

Keywords:   Mukherjea, Vivian Bose, S.R. Das, N. Chandrasekhar Aiyar
