Abstract

The disposal of fair justice and the maintenance of peace is one of the most important features of state in the modern society. Indeed, it is the caliber of the judiciary that adds to the excellence of government. The study of the development of judicial system reveals the brief history of how the Indian state in earlier times surrendered its power to the English trading company and how there was a gradual change in political and social ideas which ultimately led to the establishment of modern judicial system prevalent in India today. Earlier, traces of justice in India could be tracked as back as from the very existence of human life. It could be seen as back as from ancient India where kings were considered as the ultimate head, delivering justice, believed to be an incarnation of God and giving away justice on his behalf. The laws and policies were also based on the basic necessities of people. Changing the above, the advent of East India Company traced the actual picture of the judicial system in India which was based on practical knowledge of law rather than religious and traditional practices. The reforms of various Governors ruling India during East India Company’s rule followed by the control of British Crown on India ultimately, followed by the independence of India in 1947. The development of the judicial system was a gradual steady process of discovering and developing various aspects of judicial system and laws to ultimately adjust it according to the changing needs of the modern prevalent society. Developing from the King as the ultimate head we have reached where people have the equal rights in the society and there is the distribution of power among various people to avoid supremacy and to adapt to the changing circumstances of the judicial system important to provide necessary justice in order to maintain peace and discipline throughout.
