Commemorative stamps on Allahabad High Court - 13th March 2016

The Allahabad High Court or the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad is a high court based in Allahabad that has jurisdiction over the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It was established in 1869, making it one of the first high courts to be established in India.

In the year 1866, the High Court of Judicature for the North-Western Provinces came into existence at Agra under Letters Patent of the 17th March, 1866, replacing the old Sudder Diwanny Adawlat. Sir Walter Morgan, Barrister-at-Law and Mr. Simpson were appointed the first Chief Justice and the first Registrar respectively of High Court of North-Western Provinces. The seat of the High Court for the North-Western Provinces was shifted from Agra to Allahabad in 1869 and its designation was altered to ‘the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad’ by a supplementary Letters patent issued on March 11, 1919. On the eve of the Republic Day celebrations on the 26th January, 1950 the date of commencement of the Constitution of India, the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad came to have jurisdiction throughout the entire length and breadth of the State of Uttar Pradesh. Functioning from two locations, the High Court has its main seat at Allahabad and a Bench at Lucknow.

The Allahabad High Court is celebrating 150 years of its establishment. President Shri Pranab Mukherjee inaugurated the celebrations marking 150 years of Allahabad High Court on 13th March 2016 at Allahabad. On the occasion set of two stamps (Se-tenant) in denomination of Rs. 15 and Rs. 5 and Miniature Sheet depicting Allahabad High Court and Allahabad High Court - Lucknow Bench were released by President Pranab Mukherjee.

Postmaster told to cough up Rs 49,000

Chandigarh, March 11
A postmaster of the Mani Majra post office has been penalised by the consumer court after a customer found his order of medicine tampered with. The court has asked the official to pay a little over Rs 49,000, including the value of the goods, compensation for harassment and the litigation fee, to the complainant.

In his complaint, Ripan Kumar, a resident of Sector 37, alleged that he had sent some important medicines worth Rs 29,042 to Critical Drugs Agency, Imphal, through Speed Post on June 4 last year. The parcel reached Imphal on June 12. However, it was tampered with and the medicines were missing. The parcel was sent back to the city post office and was returned to the complainant. He alleged that the act amounted to deficiency in service and unfair trade practice.

In its defence, the opposite party averred that the contents and the value of the postal article were not disclosed by the complainant. It contended that the complainant had sent the alleged contents in the postal article in violation of the Speed Post rules.

“After going through the facts of the case, we are of the opinion that even if the contents of the parcel were not disclosed by the complainant, it was open for the opposite party to ask the complainant to disclose these. However, in the present case, no such effort was made by the party. It is the duty of the postal authorities to deliver the consignment in its original form without causing any damage to it. The consignment was in the custody of the Department of Posts and the requisite fee was paid by the complainant for its safe delivery. However, the post office failed to perform its duty properly and the parcel was returned to the complainant after being tampered with,” observed the court in its order.

The court ordered the postmaster to pay Rs 29,042 to the complainant towards the value of the goods sent through Speed Post, Rs 10,000 as compensation for mental agony and harassment caused to the complainant and Rs 10,000 as the cost of litigation.
