Overview of Judiciary Sector in India
The Government of India has three different independent branches namely the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary. This system is known as the Common Law System in which the judges develop the laws with their judgments, orders and decisions. The different types of courts form the different levels of judiciary in the country. The Supreme Court of India came into being on 28 January 1950 and substituted the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and the Federal Court of India which were the apex legal system under the colonial rule in India. There is one Chief Justice and 30 other judges in the Supreme Court who are appointed by the Indian President. These judges retire after the attainment of the age of 65 years.
Law minister Kapil Sibal has written to chief justices of high courts to immediately start consultations with state governments for putting up adequate infrastructure that would be required after the Centre sanctions 25% increase over the present judge strength of 906 in 24 High Courts. This would entail an increase of around 225 judges in the High Courts, which cumulatively face a pendency of around 40 lakh cases. Against a sanctioned strength of 906 judges, over 200 posts are lying vacant. The law minister's decision at this juncture assumes significance, this being an election year.
The district and the subordinate courts are the courts below the high courts. These courts administer jurisdiction at the district level in India. The district courts are at the top of all the subordinate courts but fall under the administrative control of the state high court to which that district belongs to. The judiciary plays a pivotal role in the country by maintaining and administering the laws. It not only administers justice but also protects the rights of the citizens of the country. Judiciary interprets the laws and acts as a custodian of the Constitution. Courts, tribunals and regulators together work and form this integrated system for the benefit of the nation.
