Courts of Record

High Courts are Courts of Record, set up under Article 215 of The Constitution of India. It is clear that these Constitutional Courts, being Courts of Record, the jurisdiction to recall their own orders is inherent by virtue of the fact that they are Superior Courts of Record. This has been recognized in:

National Sewing Thread Co. Ltd., 1953 SCR 1028.

Shivdev Singh, AIR 1963 SC 1909.

M.M. Thomas, (2000) 1 SCC 666.

Hon’ble Justice R.F. Nariman, Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai v. Pratibha Industries Ltd., [Civil Appeal No. 11822 of 2018].
