    More about Madhya Pradesh High Court, Jabalpur and Historical Information

    The present state of Madhya Pradesh, as is well known, was originally created as Central Province on 02/11/1861, as Judicial Commission’s territory and was administered by the Judicial Commissioner. The Judicial Commissioner’s court at Nagpur was, at that time, the highest Court of the territory. It was converted into a Governor’s province in 1921, when it became entitled to a full-fledged High Court for administration of Justice. Financial & administrative difficulties however, resulted in denial of a High Court, for about 15 years, to the Central Provinces. Meanwhile Berar, a part of Nijam’s state of Hyderebad, was transferred in 1933 to the Central Province, for administration.

    This gave the state its new name "Central Provinces & Berar". Thereafter, by virtue of Letters Patent dated 2nd of January 1936,issued under Section108 Thereafter, by virtue of Letters Patent  dated 2nd of January 1936, issued under Section 108 of the Government of India Act, 1915, by King Emperor, George the Fifth, Nagpur High Court was established for Central Pronvices & Berar. This Letters Patentwhereunder the Nagpur High Court was constituted and invested with jurisdiction, continued in force even after the adoption of the constitution of India on 26th of January 1950 by virtue of Articles 225 & 372 thereof.

    Thus Nagpur High Court was not abolished but by a legal fiction it became High Court for the new state of Madhya Pradesh with its seat at Jabalpur. Hon’ble the Chief Justice, vide order dated 1st of November 1956 constituted temporary benches of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh at Indore and Gwalior. Later, by a Presidential Notification Dt. 28th of November 1968, issued in the exercise of the powers conferred by the Subsection (2) of section 51 of the States Reorganization Act, 1956, permanent benches of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh at Indore and Gwalior were established.
