There are various levels of judiciary in India – different types of courts, each with varying powers depending on the tier and jurisdiction bestowed upon them. They form a strict hierarchy of precedence, in line with the order of the courts in which they sit, with the Supreme Court of India at the top, followed by High Courts of respective states with district judges sitting in District Courts and Magistrates of Second Class and Civil Judge (Junior Division) at the bottom. Well, in the Indian Judiciary in order to make the judiciary more expendable the judicial officer is also deputed to various departments or ministries other than the field (court) work, where the judicial power is extended. The possible reason for deputation might be it help -

  • The judicial officer to share and extend their legal knowledge in order to establish a better justice system.

  • The High Court & Supreme Court can easily review the working of various departments.
