29-07-2006: High Court of Jammu and Kashmir India Stamp


The Jammu and Kashmir High Court was established on 26 March 1928. Before its establishment, the ruler of the state, Maharaja Pratap Singh, had the final authority in the administration of justice. In 1889 the British Government directed Maharaja Pratap Singh to appoint a council. But the Council did not last long, and then a Minister nominated by the ruler was appointed as a judge of the High Court to handle judicial matters. In 1927 a new constitution was approved and a ministry was established in the Judicial Department replacing the Law Member. Subsequently, the High Court was established under Order No. 1 on 26 March 1928 consisting of a Chief Justice and two judges.
