KATHMANDU — The government has registered a bill at the Legislature-Parliament Secretariat on Sunday, looking for revision and combination of laws to make the judicial system compatible with the federal system.

The Bill to Amend and Integrate Acts Related to the Judicial Administration proposes to transform seven of the 16 existing appellate courts into high courts as per the constitutional obligation to set up high courts in each province within one year of promulgation of the new constitution.

According to this procurement, there will be one high court in each of the seven federal provinces, while the remaining nine appellate courts will be converted into benches of the high courts of the provinces concerned.

The  high courts will be more powerful than the appellate courts and will give final verdict on many cases that are under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, said Tek Prasad Dhungana, secretary, Ministry of Law, Justice and Constituent Assembly.

The government’s move comes as an initiative toward implementing the constitutional provisions relating to federating the country into seven provinces.

The new Constitution has made it mandatory to replace the appellate courts structure within one year of commencement of the new Constitution, which was promulgated on September 20.

Article 300 (3) of the new Constitution provisions that the enactment of federal laws, establishment of the high courts and dissolution of the existing appellate courts must all be done within a year of commencement of the new Constitution.

All the 16 appellate courts will be dissolved after the new bill is passed and their resources will be transferred to HCs.
