About High Court of Patna

The High Court of Patna has been expanding over the years. In 1947 it already had nine permanent and three additional Judges that made up the sanctioned strength of the Court. Due to the separation of the province of Orissa, the court ceased to have jurisdiction over that territory from 1948, as a new court would be created exclusively for the new province. In 1952 the sanctioned strength increased to 13 permanent judges, and a year later the 14th permanent judge was added. In 2005 and 2012 the Jamui and Sheohar Judgeship were created respectively, and the number of permanent judges of the state of Bihar increased to 31, which is maintained until today.
