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.
