Enumerate the functions of the Supreme Court.

Answer :

The Supreme Court is the uppermost and ultimate superior court of record and is authorized to exercise its powers, subject to the provisions of the Constitution. The court rulings take priority over all lower Courts. Consisting of the Chief Justice of India and a maximum of 30 other judges, it has extensive powers in the form of unique, decision-making and advice-giving control.

• It protects the fundamental rights of citizens and settles an argument between various governments in the country.


• It hears matters which may specifically be referred to it under the constitution by President of India.


• It also may take matters on its own, without anyone drawing its attention to them.


• The law declared by the Supreme Court becomes compulsory on all courts within India and also by the union and state governments.
