Despite High Courts are independent and co-equal institutions, till they are ‘judicial authority’ u/a 144 of Constitution to act in aid of the Supreme Court – Explain

The order of the Supreme Court is a judicial order, and is otherwise enforceable throughout the territory of India under Article 142 of the Constitution. The High Court is bound to come in aid of the Supreme Court in having its order worked out. While the High Court is independent, and is a co- equal institution, the Constitutional scheme and judicial discipline requires that the High Court should give due regard to the orders of the Supreme Court which are binding on all courts within the territory of India.


JURISDICTION-One superior court cannot issue a “Order” to another superior court of co-ordinate jurisdiction, nor can such a court issue an order to itself. The basis of this rule is that orders made under this Article are issued for the purpose or correction of errors in the exercise of extraordinary jurisdiction and since superior courts are entitled to credit from other courts for acting within their own jurisdiction, the question of issue of a writ to them would not arise.
