Article 132 in the Constitution of India

There was a discussion about Draft Article 110 (now Article 132 of the 1950 Constitution of India) on 3 June 1949. It granted the Supreme Court appellate jurisdiction for cases originating from the High Courts that raised crucial issues regarding constitutional interpretation.

  • Suppose the High Court certifies under Article 134A that the matter involves a significant law issue about interpreting this Constitution. In that case, there is a right of appeal to the Supreme Court from any judgment, decree, or final decision of a High Court in the Indian territory.
  • The High Court, under Article 132 (1), grants a certificate to the party, which permits it to file an appeal in the Supreme Court if the High Court deems it fit that such a case involves a substantial question of law.

Summary:

What is Article 132?

Article 132 stipulates that the Supreme Court has appellate authority over appeals from High Courts under certain conditions. Because it allows an appeal to the Supreme Court by High Court certification, the Supreme Court may grant special permission to appeal.
