Howrah District Court Hand Book
What a District Court is:-
Section 2 (4) of the Code [CPC] defines District to mean the local limits of the jurisdiction of a principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction. It includes the local limits of the ordinary original civil jurisdiction of a High Court. The expression District court, though not directly defined, is indirectly defined in Section 2 (4) itself to mean the principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction of a District.
Therefore, the expression District Court always denotes the principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction of a District. All other civil Courts of original jurisdiction, even if presided over by officers of the very same rank and status, will not be treated as District Courts within the meaning of Section 2 (4), if they do not happen to be the principal Civil Court of the district.
The expression Judge is defined in Section 2 (8) of the Code to mean the presiding officer of a Civil Court. Therefore, to be a judge within the meaning of Section 2 (8), the person concerned need not be the presiding officer of a principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction.
If we keep in mind the distinction between the expressions District Court and Judges, it will be clear that the general power of withdrawal and transfer conferred under Section 24 (1) is upon 2 courts namely:-
(i) the High Court and
(ii) the principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction of a district, which satisfies the definition under Section 2 (4).
From this, if we go to clause (a) of sub-section (3) of Section 24, it will be clear that the deeming fiction created therein is about the Courts of Additional and Assistant Judges vis-a-vis the District Court. Once this is clear, there is no difficulty in concluding that the absence of the word district after the words additional and assistant is of no consequence. The emphasis in clause (a) of sub-section (3) is not simply on Additional Judges and Assistant Judges, but is actually on Courts of Additional and Assistant Judges vis-a-vis District Court. This important aspect has not been taken note of in Manchukonda Venkata Jagannadham.
A careful look at clause (a) of sub-section (3) of section 24 would show that the phrase courts of additional and assistant judges appearing therein, is ejusdem generis with what follows, namely the phrase District court. When clause (a) speaks of the courts of additional and assistant judges with specific reference to the District court, it can be construed only as a reference to the Additional and Assistant District Judges, irrespective of whether the word District is used or not in between the words Additional Judges and Assistant Judges.

Principle of subordination
Section 3 of the Code reads as follows:
Subordination of Courts: – For the purposes of this Code, the District Court is subordinate to the High Court, and every Civil Court of a grade inferior to that of a District Court and every Court of Small Causes is subordinate to the High Court and District Court.
As per Section 3, a Civil Court will be treated as subordinate to the District Court, only if that Civil Court happens to be of a grade inferior to the District Court. Since in terms of judicial powers, all District Judges enjoy the same status, the learned Judge thought in Manchukonda that the presiding officer of an Additional District Court cannot be treated as a grade inferior to the Presiding Officer of the Principal District Court.
But, insofar as this aspect is concerned, it must be pointed out that Section 3 does not speak either about the hierarchy of the Judges or about the subordination of one or more Judges to another. Section 3 speaks only about the subordination of Courts and not subordination of Judges.
Section 24 (1) (a) empowers the District Court to transfer a case pending before it, to any Court subordinate to it, provided such a Court has jurisdiction to try and dispose of the same. A Principal District Court cannot transfer any case pending on its file to the Court of an Additional District Judge, because the Additional District Judge cannot be treated as subordinate to the Principal District Judge. The Principal District Judge cannot also transfer a regular appeal pending before him to the Court of a Junior Civil Judge, since such a Judge, though subordinate to the Principal District Judge, will have no jurisdiction to try and dispose of an appeal. These consequences arising out of such an interpretation, would make the provision, a dead letter.
To put it differently, two conditions are to be satisfied for the exercise of the power under Section 24 (1) (a). The first is that the Court to which the case is to be transferred should be subordinate to the Court ordering the transfer. The second is that the transferee Court should also be competent (have jurisdiction) to try and dispose of the same.

Jurisdiction– as defined in the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English means “The power held by an official or an official body, especially a court of law – the right to use such power.”
Special Judge: the special Judge shall be deemed to be a court of Sessions and the person conducting a prosecution before a special court shall he deemed to be a public prosecutor. This provision clearly indicates that inspite of exercise of power u/s 167 Cr.P.C the special Judge is a court of Sessions and therefore not a Magistrate.
Cadre strength of District and Sessions Judge: Apex Court in D. Ganesh Rao Patnaik and others v. State of Jharkhand and others (2005 (8) SCC 454), the petitioners would contend that, the cadre strength of District and Sessions Judge means the entire cadre of the District and Sessions Judge, including temporary posts and in such circumstances, there is no justification to deprive the direct recruits of their share in the temporary posts in that cadre. But, the judgment of the Apex Court in D. Ganesh Rao Patnaik’s case (supra) was in the context of Rule 2(a) of the Bihar Superior Judicial Service Rules, 1946, where ‘cadre’ means the entire cadre of the Bihar Superior Judicial Service and, therefore, there is no warrant for excluding the temporary posts. Paragraph 10 of the judgment reads thus;
“10. Before dealing with the main issue raised in the appeal, namely, the inter se seniority of direct recruits and the promotees, the first and foremost question which requires consideration is whether for calculating the one third quota of direct recruits as provided in Rule 6, the temporary posts of Additional District and Sessions Judges have to be included or not. R.6 only says that of the posts in the cadre of the Service, two thirds shall be filled by promotion and one third by direct recruitment. Cadre is defined in sub-rule (a) of Rule 2 and it means the cadre of the Bihar Superior Judicial Service. It is important to note here that the definition of “cadre”, as given in the aforesaid rule does not say that the temporary posts have not to be taken into consideration or have to be excluded nor there is any indication to that effect. “Cadre” means the entire cadre of the Bihar Superior Judicial Service and, therefore, there is no warrant for excluding the temporary posts.”
