The Judiciary:

Our Judiciary is separate from our Executive. This principle is called the separation of the executive from the Judiciary. This means that as far as possible the same official should not have both executive and judicial functions. India has a single unified judicial system. This means that all other courts act under Supreme Court.

Different Courts of the Country:-
1. The Supreme Court:- The Supreme Court is in New Delhi. It is made up of a Chief Justice of India and 25 other judges. The Judges of Supreme Court hold office until the age of 65. In making the appointment of the Chief Justice the President Can consult other judges of the Supreme Court but in case of the appointment of other judges, the Chief Justice is always consulted.
(i) Qualifications of the Chief Justice and Other Judges:- Indian citizen who has served as an advocate in a High Court for at least 10 years or a judge of a High Court for 5 years or a distinguished jurist in the opinion of the President.
(ii) Removal of the Judges:- The judges of the Supreme Court and the High Courts can be removed before time only by a special procedure called (Impeachment). They can be removed on the ground of proven misbehavior or incapacity. The Parliament (both houses) should pass the resolution by a two-third majority of the members present and voting, and this number again, should not be less than a majority of the total membership of the house. Then President can by an order remove the Judge. The Judge facing the impeachment is provided the chance to put his side into his defence.

Three types of appeals can be made to the Supreme Court:- (i) interpretation of Constitution (ii) Civil cases and (iii) Criminal cases.
