History of the court
Before the establishment of the different bodies in the state, the state was ruled over by the Wazirs and whatever they decided was the law. Therefore, with the passage of time it was thought that there must be some body of government which may see all such issues. Henceforth, the court was made and its working started fluently. Although the court of judicial commissioner came into being on August 15, 1948 followed by two other courts of District and sessional Judges. In the year 1966, Delhi High Court Act was enacted and with effect from May first, the central government of India extended its jurisdiction. This made the earlier Court of judicial commissioner to Himachali Bench of Delhi High Court at Shimla itself. Revenswood is the name of old High Court building where the initial years of the court started. The state of Himachal Pradesh attained the Statehood in 1971. It established its very own High Court whose headquarters were at Revenswood in Shimla. At that time it was having two Hon'ble judges and one Hon'ble Chief justice. Hon'ble Mr. Justice M.H> Beg was the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Himachal Pradesh. Other two Hon'ble judges were Mr. justice D.B. Lal and Mr. Justice C.R. Thakur.
