Orissa High Court

The Orissa High Court was inaugurated on July 26, 1948, after an extensive fight to create a High Court in the region. There was not previously a High Court, because the state of Orissa belonged to the vast province of Bengal Presidency. Over the years, it gave way to different separations, finally forming the state of Orissa or Odisha. After the independence of India, in 1947, it was that the government recognized the need to create a High Court in the region.
