The Supreme Court of India is the apex court of the Indian Territory as established by Part V, Chapter IV of the Indian Constitution. As per the Indian Constitution, the role of the Supreme Court is that of a federal court; so it is the guardian of all the lower courts as well as it is the highest court of appeal.

On 28th Jan. 1950, just two days after the de facto and de jure galvanization of democracy (i.e. sovereign democratic republic) on Indian Territory, the Supreme Court came into force. The inaugural ceremony had been taken place in the Chamber of Princes in the Parliament building.

However, after its inauguration on 28 January 1950, the sittings of Supreme Court continued in the Chamber of Princes in the Parliament House itself. But in the year 1958, the Court shifted into its own building.
