Apart from the fact that the change of name is unnecessary, the proposed Bill is also defective because it fails to amend the Letters (1) by which these three Charter High Courts were created in 1861 and later in 1865. A full Bench of the Bombay High Court has held that the Letters Patent represent “existing law” under Article 366(10) of the Constitution and have as much (2) force as any other Act of Parliament. The present Bill merely seeks to change the names of these three high courts without any attempt to amend the Letters Patent.
Apart from this serious (3) , it is also not proper to rename the Madras High Court as Chennai High Court. Earlier, the Madras High Court was the high court which had jurisdiction over Madras Presidency, as did the Bombay and Calcutta High Courts over their (4) presidencies. Today, the Madras High Court has jurisdiction over Tamil Nadu and Puducherry (another name change!). Therefore, if this unnecessary and unproductive (5) to change the name has to be implemented, the name must be changed so that it indicates that the jurisdiction extends not only to the State of Tamil Nadu but also to the Union Territory of Puducherry. Similarly, the Bombay High Court has jurisdiction over Goa and must called the High Court of Maharashtra and Goa. Another difficulty is that the Bombay High Court has (6) at Nagpur and Aurangabad and calling it merely Mumbai High Court would be wholly inappropriate. The Madras High Court also has a Bench at Madurai.
Enquiries by the authors at the Madras High Court registry have revealed that in recent times no resolution has been passed at any Madras High Court full court meeting accepting the name change proposal of the Union Government.The names of the three high courts are known (7) the world and several of their earlier judgments have been read with admiration. Changing their name is bound to create confusion amongst judges, lawyers and legal scholars throughout the world. The authorities have sensibly decided not to change the name of the University of Madras; Madras Medical College; Madras Institute of Technology; and Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. This is because these great institutions are known throughout the world and changing their name is bound to be unproductive. Apart from resulting in a waste of money and administrative effort, what is shocking is the (8) un-necessity of such a change.
It is (9) hoped that, at the very least, this Bill is referred to a Select Committee of Parliament. It is not merely sufficient to get the views of the State government; they must also have adequate feedback from the respective high court associations. Recently, the judges of the Calcutta High Court turned down the proposal to change the name to Kolkata High Court. (10) , it is best that the old names, which have existed for over 150 years, continue.
