On 2nd November, 1866 by way of notification Judicial Officers were appointed for the first time for Bhavnagar City, Sihor and Botad Parganas and as such The Court of Sir Judge having the powers to entertain any appeals rising from the Judgment of the aforementioned Courts was established in Bhavnagar and the appeals from the said Court lay to The Darbar Hujoor Court. Hence, Bhavnagar boasts of an established Judicial System which dates back to almost 143 Years. The Judicial System so established by His Highness Maharaja Jashvantsinhji is a classical example of long sightedness of His Highness and implementation of a perfect administrative system where the executive and the judiciary were differentiated so that independence of Judiciary could be upheld and apt justice could be delivered in time.
