    The rank of a judge starts from Munsiff-Magistrate. For this you have to pass examination. In some state the selection is done directly by high court and in some state it is done by state public service commission. For this in some state there is no need of any experience as advocate and in some states 2 to 5 years of experience is needed as a lawyer.

    For becoming a judge of the high court the minimum qualification is 7 years of experience as lawyer in the respective high court. After the high court judge then next promotion is the judge of the supreme court.
