Justice B Siva Sankara Rao will hold the post for three years from the day he assumed office, as per government order.

The state government had earlier, passed legislation to bring in all contracts worth Rs 100 core or above under a Judicial Preview by a High Court Judge and requested the court acting Chief Justice to suggest the name of a judge.
