    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Dear Aspirant,

    There is a High court in each state where as there is only one court for whole nation.

    The high court is situated in the capital of the related state where as supreme court is situated in the capital of the country i.e. in Delhi.

    There is one chief justice in the sureme court & he is the head of the supreme court.

    There are many judges in the supreme court who give judgement on the plea & proof of the advocates.

    There are similar administration in the high court.

    First the matter is suited in the high court & after decision of high court,some of the cases are taken to the supreme court for hearing & judgement.


    Thanks.

    DEAR FRIEND..HIGH COURT IS NOT THE LAST SHELTER OF GETTING JUSTICE ACCYORDING TO INDIAN CONSTITUTION.

    IF ONE OF THE TWO INVOLVED WITH THE CASE ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE VERDICT GIVEN BY HIGH COURT

    JUSTICE.DISSATISFIED PART ie LOOSER PARTY IN CASE CAN GO TO APPEAL TO SUPREME COURT TO GET JUSTICE.

    IN OUR CONSTITUTION THIS OPPORTUNITY GIVES TO ALL AND FINALLY SUPREME COURT'S VERDICT IS LAST AND FINAL.

    THANK YOU,

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    HI. First of all i want you to know that Supreme Court is the Apex court or You can say the Highest court in India. Supreme court is the Final decision maker in India.


    A Supreme court can exercise Appellate jurisdiction (relating to Appeal against the decision of a particular case) over the High court cases while a High court can only exercise Appellate jurisdiction over the cases of District courts.

    Only a Supreme court can deal with the matters of constituency and not the High Court .

    There is only 1 Supreme court in India while there are 24 High Courts for varios states.

    These are the major differences. Hoping i have satisfied your query. Thanx

    It is the highest court in the jurisdiction hierarchy, also called as apex court.
    No further review of the judgement can be done once a judgement have been given excluding
    any special cases where the ultimate decision maker is president of India.
    High court comes a rank below the supreme court and its judgement can be reviewed
    in supreme court

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    dear friend,
    The supreme court is the one of the biggest court in India which is in New Delhi. The decision taking by supreme court not change by any one. but only President can change that decision. It also same rule which are followed by president to changing the decision of supreme court.
    when ever any case is not solved in high court then is apply for the supreme court.

    Where as High court is that court which is less authority then supreme court as high authority from district court.
    It change the decision of district court but not change the supreme court decision.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Both the high court and supreme court works to provide justice to the people. But the scale of their working differs. Supreme court is the Apex court of the country where the decision of it's can be changed by anyone except the president of India in rare cases. There is only one supreme court present in our country which is situated at delhi i.e capital of our country. There is always a panel of judge in the supreme court. The supreme court hears the case of the decision made by high court where one party which is disatisified applied further for justice. The high court works under the supreme court but all the disatisfied cases of local court or a district are heard under the high court. In every state a single high court is present to provide justice.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    hi Aspirant,
    Supreme court & High Court both are used for Judgement. Difference is that there is only 1 supreme court available in India
    which is in Delhi. While High court is available in almost all the states. in U.P there is 2 high-courts sessions available.
    When High fail to any decision then Supreme Court take the decision. after then Only President change the decision of supreme court
    otherwise no one change his decision.
    While Supreme court change the decision of high court when anyone appeal to supreme court against the decision of High Court.
    Hence the Supreme Court Judgement is final .
    Thanking You..
    All the Best.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Supreme court is the highest level of court in India. It is the court where the biggest level of cases are held.

    But high courts are the state level courts which are located in every states.

    They are responsible for handling the state level cases. Based upon the intensity of cases supreme court or high court are summoned.

    And when a case is filed in High court, if a party is not happy with the judge's decision, they can appeal in supreme court.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Hi friend,

    There is difference between the courts but there is no difference between the judges.

    ---> Judges are the same everywhere.
    ---> The judges in the high court have jurisdiction in the respective courts and the judges in the supreme court,in the latter.
    ---> They are not interchangeable.
    ---> The chiefs are called high court judges with jurisdiction within the state while the CJI ( Cheif judge of india ) is the ultimate judicial authority.
    ---> Decisions by high court judges are open to appeal in the supreme court but those in the later are final and binding on the entire country and no appeal.

    This is the difference between the supreme court and high court.

    Friend

    Supreme court is the head of all courts and can be said as a apex court of the country. No other court is Higher then that of supreme court in terms of authority. No body can change the decision made by supreme court. Only President has the right to change the decision made by supreme court. Supreme court is one and situated in Delhi where as high court is available in every state. Decision made by high court can be denied or modified by Supreme court.

    Supreme court have one main judge and a team of judge under him.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Indian judicial system consists of number of court system which are as follows according to the rank

    1. Supreme Court

    2. High Court

    3. District Courts

    4. Subordinate Courts


    Supreme court is the most powerful court in India. It is also known as apex court. It is the top court. It is situated in New Delhi. In india there is only one supreme court in india. But the high court are there in each states. High court is the superior court of the states and they are who control the subordinate courts the states. The supreme court is the court which controls the various high courts of different state.

    IN supreme courts the jurisdiction of the cases are filed under article 136 of the constitution of India. But in high court it is filed under article 226 and 227 of the constitution of India.

    IN the surpeme court the disputes relating to the different states in india are filed and solved. If an order is passed by the high courts then you can challenge the said order to the supreme court. But if you fail in the supreme court then there is no provision to file an appeal since the supreme court is the top most court.

    The similarity is that in both the high and supreme court the judges are appointed by the President of india in consultation with the government of india.

    Re: What is the difference between Supreme court and High Court?

    Hi friend,

    In adminstration wise they are similar. Both have one chief justice who makes final decision and board of lawyers who probes in to the case and helps the chief.

    High court is state level one. Supreme court is highest legal entity nation wide. The decision taken by the supreme court is final one. All the cases are filed under that particular high courts.

    After the final judgement in high court also if they are not satisfied then they can go to supreme court for hearing.

    Hope this helps you.

    Regards,
    BSR.

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!
    It's always a treat and fun to answer your queries.
    I also appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us!


    See,High courts are at state level.
    Hence there are 24 High Courts in India ( approximately one for each state )
    But there is only one Supreme court.

    A verdict given by a High Court can be challenged in the Supreme court.
    But the verdict given by the Supreme court and ultimate and you cannot challenge it.
    Only the President has the power to change the verdict in case of "Mercy Plea".

    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!
