The high courts of India are the principal legal  civil courts of original jurisdiction in each state and union territory. However, a high court exercises its original civil and criminal indian jurisdiction only if the subordinate courts are not authorized by law to try such matters for lack of pecuniary, territorial jurisdiction. High courts may also enjoy original jurisdiction in certain matters, if so designated specifically in a state or federal law.
