The Supreme Court of India has creative, appellate and suggested jurisdiction. Elatedly having the original jurisdiction extends to any dispute between the Government of India and one or more states, or between the Government of India and any state or states on one side and one or more states on the other, or between two or more states, if and insofar as the dispute involves any question whether of law or of fact on which the existence or extent of a legal right depends. Addition to this is the article 32 of the Indian Constitution which gives an extensive original control to the Supreme Court in regard to enforcement of Fundamental Rights. The Supreme Court has been conferred with power to direct transfer of any civil or criminal case from one State High Court to another State High Court, or from a court subordinate to another State High Court.
