Calcutta High Court Recruitment 2024 (eCourts.gov.in) New Notification

The Calcutta High Court is the oldest in India. It has jurisdiction over the state of West Bengal and the Union Territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The design of the High Court building is based on the Cloth Hall in Ypres, Belgium. The court has a sanctioned judge strength of 72. The Calcutta High Court is one of the three High Courts in India established at the Presidency Towns by Letters patent granted by Her Majesty Queen Victoria, dated 26 June 1862, and is the oldest High Court in India.

Colcutta High Court

It was established as the High Court of Judicature at Fort William on 1 July 1862, under the High Courts Act, 1861, which was preceded by the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William. Despite the city’s name officially changing from Calcutta to Kolkata in 2001, the Court, as an institution, retained the old name. The bill to rename it as Kolkata High Court was approved by the Cabinet on 5 July 2016, alongside the renaming of its two other counterparts in Chennai and Mumbai. However, the High Court still retains the old name.

The neo-Gothic High Court building was constructed in 1872, ten years after the establishment of the court itself. The design, by then-government architect Walter Granville, was loosely modeled on the 13th-century Cloth Hall at Ypres, Belgium.

The seat of the Calcutta High Court is in Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal. According to the Calcutta High Court (Extension of Jurisdiction) Act, 1953, the Calcutta High Court’s jurisdiction was extended to cover Chandernagore (now called Chandannagar) and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as of May 2, 1950. The Calcutta High Court extended its Circuit Bench in Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and in Jalpaiguri, the headquarters of the Jalpaiguri division of West Bengal.
