A Case for a more Federal Judiciary
There is an imbalance now which the Supreme Court of India needs to address by empowering High Courts again.
Federalism in India
- Midpoint- Federalism is a midpoint between unitarism which has a supreme centre, to which the States are subordinate, and confederalism wherein the States are supreme, and are merely coordinated by a weak centre.
- Integrated Judiciary-India shares legislative and administrative powers but has an integrated judiciary
- Equality of Power- The Indian Constitution envisaged the equality of power of High Court judges and Supreme Court judges, with a High Court judge not being a subordinate of a Supreme Court judge.
