India has a single judiciary system. It means the following:

  • The Supreme Court is the head of the Indian judiciary and supervises the functions of the lower courts.
  • Single civil and criminal system of laws operates all over the country.
  • By the way of appeal, cases from the High Court may be taken to the Supreme Court.

India has adopted a single independent judiciary due to the following reasons:

  • It is important to make judiciary independent and free from any executive and legislative interference in order to deliver the rights of individuals.
  • An independent judiciary is required for a federal set up as there are division of powers between the state and the Central governments.
  • Only an independent judiciary can protect democracy and safeguard the fundamental rights of people.
