About Sikkim High Court: Prior to its merger with the Union of India in the year 1975 by the Constitution (Thirty Sixth Amendment) Act, 1975, the erstwhile Sikkim was under a monarchy. The King who was popularly known as “the Chogyal” was the fountainhead of justice, whose words was the law. Under the then administrative setup, there was no place for an independent judiciary. The judicial procedure being followed then was very simple and free from legal technicalities. The Courts were dispensing substantive justice based on the principle of justice, equity, and good conscience. Lawyers were not allowed to appear in Court.

The administration of justice in Sikkim in the last century was being carried out by the Feudal Landlords (Adda Courts), and Jongpons (District Officers). Pistons (Headmen) and Mandals with the Chogyal at the top.

In 1909, Kazis, Thikadars, and Lamas were invested with judicial powers by a State Council resolution. They could try civil suits up to the valuation of ₹ 500/-.

In 1916, the Appellate Court by the designation of Chief Court was created with jurisdiction to try important original suits and also to hear appeals against the decisions of the Adda Courts.
