HISTORY OF DISTRICT & SESSIONS JUDGE,NAGAON

The Nagaon Judiciary is enriched with glorious history. At first, two Civil Courts namely- the Court of the Munsiff and the Court of the Sub- Judge (Mafasal) were established in the district. The latter had to administer Justice in the then undivided Nagaon district (later divided into Nagaon and Morigaon districts) and in some parts of Karbi-Anglong and Sonitpur districts and thereby accomplished a Herculean task indeed. The Munsiff Court decided the cases of Civil matters. Both the said Courts were run under the supervision of the Hon'ble Gauhati High Court, Guwahati. However, the dignified post of District & Sessions Judge was created in 1967 and the Judges have accordingly been appointed by the Hon'ble High Court, Guwahati.
