Celebration of 150 Years of Chennai High Court

The High Court of Judicature at Madras at 150

 

The Indian High Courts Act, 1861 passed by the British Parliament enabled the colonial government to establish High Courts of Judicature in India. It merged the earlier Supreme Courts functioning in the Presidency Towns along with Sadar Adalats and established High Courts in the three Presidential Towns of Bombay (Mumbai), Calcutta (Kolkata), and Madras (Chennai). The Act authorised Queen Victoria to issue letters patent under the great seal of the United Kingdom to erect and establish High Courts of judicatures.

The court at the time of its establishment was required to discharge cases with “justice, equity and good conscience.” Though the charter for the establishment of the High Court of Madras was issued on June 26, 1862, the Madras High Court was inaugurated on August 15, 1862. Since 1892, many changes have taken place. The beach opposite to the High Court, popularly known as High Court Beach, disappeared thanks to Port Trust cornering the place. The Light House beaming its light over the city, which was housed within the High Court building, was closed. It is ironical to have facade lighting arrayed to see the old Light House in the evenings.

சென்னை ஐகோர்ட் தொடங்கி 150 ஆண்டுகள் ஆகிவிட்டன. இதற்கான விழா வருகிற செப்டம்பர் 8 ம் தேதி கோலாகலமாக கொண்டாடப்படவிருக்கிறது. 1862 ம் ஆண்டு தொடங்கப்பட்ட சென்னை ஐகோர்ட் தற்போது சிவப்பு வண்ணத்தில் கம்பீரமாய் நிற்கும் கட்டடத்தில் இயங்கத்தொடங்கிய ஆண்டு 1892 . இந்த கட்டடம் கட்டுவதற்கு அப்போது 12 லட்சத்து 98 ஆயிரம் ரூபாய் செலவாகியிருக்கிறது.

எத்தனையோ வழக்குகள், பரபரப்பான தீர்ப்புகள் என்று இந்தியாவையே திரும்பிப்பார்க்க வைத்த சிவப்பு கட்டடம் இது.
சல்யூட் வைப்போமே!
