Judiciary in India

CHAPTER OBJECTIVES

In India, we identify the Legislature with a body of elected representatives and the Executive with the President and Governor, and Prime Minister and Chief Minister with their respective Councils of Ministers. The Judiciary, the third organ of government, is identified with a system of law courts or body of judges such as the lower courts, high courts and the Supreme Court. The Constitution of India provides for the Supreme Court of India as the apex court, high courts for each state, and subordinate courts at the district level. This chapter will explore the structure, features and functions of the Judiciary in India.
