When we glance at the history of the Indian legal system, we can see that it is mainly based on the English legal system. In reality, the British administration was responsible for the systematic creation of Indian judicial institutions, judicial concepts, and legislations. Apart from that, the British government in India established a hierarchical judicial system. As a result, a council of jurists known as the Privy Council was given the ultimate judicial power. It has had a tremendous influence on India’s current legal system. The Privy Council has made a significant contribution to the evolution of the Indian legal system and judicial institutions, as seen in the above discussion. Many important legal ideas were incorporated into the Indian legal system as a result of it. In addition, it influenced India's judicial institutions. Overall, it has played a critical part in the development of India's current legal system.
