History
The exact date and the notification by which the District & Sesssions court at Mysuru is established is
not known. It appears that by the rules published in the notification of the Chief Commissioner for
Mysuru, Dated: 13.04.1869 Civil Courts were established in Mysuru, which was then known as
Astagrama Division. From Time to time, there were amendments to that notification and in
supersession of all such rules, regulations and notifications, a fresh notification No. 235 and 236 dated
27-8-1879, Civil Courts in Mysuru were re-constituted. These notifications were published in Mysuru
Gazette Dt: 13.09.1879 and had come into effect from 15.09.1879. Therefore, it appears that the court
of the District & Sessions Judge,Mysuru came into existence from 15.09.1879. ( This information is
gathered from the Gazetter and files of the year 1879 maintained in the Record Room of this Court).

Civil Judge and JMFCs Court,Mysuru History


Before 1879, it appears that powers of the Magistrates were exercised & disputes of Civil nature were
decided by the Amildars (Tahsildars) and the Assistant Commissioners, who were designated as Judicial
assistants, Under notification No.235,236 Dated 27-08-1879, the Courts of Munsiff, Sub-ordinate Judge
and District Judge were constituted and such courts were established from 15-09-1879. Copy of that
notification is enclosed herewith. However, it appears that Asst.Commissioners were exercising powers
of Subordinate Judges also. With the State, Subordinate Judges were exclusively Judicial Officers and
the court of Civil Judge-cum-District Magistrate was created under Government Notification No.143857/CST. 18-56-4 Dated: 29-05-1956 which came into force on 02-06-1956. Consequent upon
enforcement of Mysuru Civil Courts Act,1964, the court of the Civil Judge in Mysuru was designated as
Court of Civil Judge and Chief Judicial Magistrate,Mysuru with effect from 15-06-1976, vide G.O.No.LAW

Under Chief Commissioners Notification dated 13.04.1869 Civil Courts were constituted for Mysuru

Munsiffs .In pursuance of that letter of Government of India,Mysuru Chief Commissioner under

under that notification, Munsiffs courts were constituted at Nanjangud and Hunsur and in some places .
