There are three different levels of court in our country!

  • There are several courts at the lower level while there is only one at the apex level.
  • The courts that most people interact with are what are called subordinate or district courts and these courts are present in every district.
  • These are usually at the District or Tehsil level or in towns and they hear many kinds of cases.
  • Each state is divided into districts that are presided over by a District Judge.
  • Each state has a High Court which is the highest court of that state.
  • At the top is the Supreme Court that is located in New Delhi and is presided over by the Chief Justice of India.
  • The decisions made by the Supreme Court are binding on all other courts in India.
