Therefore in common language can say Judiciary is itself a constitution but this does not mean that the court have unlimited power because in India the doctrine of Constitutionalism also applied. However, there are number of provision which specifically deals with the Indian Judiciary role, power & function and appointment of officer. Under the Constitution of India the major provisions are- Part V - Chapter IV - Deals with Union Judiciary i.e., Supreme Court - appointment & removal, role & function Part VI - Chapter V - Deals with High Court - appointment & removal, role & function Part VI - Chapter VI- Deals with Subordinate Courts - appointment & removal, role & function Article 50 - Independence of Judiciary - which separates judiciary from executive Other provision are also under various parts & Articles which deals with the court responsibility.
