District Courts of India

District courts are a category of courts which exists in several nations. The District Courts of India are presided over by a judge. They administer justice in India at a district level. These courts are under administrative and judicial control of the High Court of the State to which the district concerned belongs.
The highest court in each district is that of the District and Sessions Judge. This is the principal court of civil jurisdiction. This is also a court of Sessions. It has the power to impose any sentence including capital punishment.

Judicial independence of each court is the characteristic feature of the district judiciary. The greatest problem of district courts is that of huge backlog of cases leading to undue delay in deciding cases.
