Warren Hastings-Judicial Reforms
Warren Hastings formulated Judicial Plan of 1772. It contained 37 regulations about civil and criminal laws. The Diwani area of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa was divided into several districts. Each district had an English collector as its head. The district was the main administrative unit in the plan. A Mofussil Diwani Adalat was established in each district to decide civil cases. The collector was the judge of this court. Provision was made for appeal to the Sadar Diwani Adalat at Calcutta. This court comprised Governor as its president and at least two members of the Council.
A Mofussil Foujdar(or Nizamat) Adalat was established in each district for the trial of crimes. This court was assisted by a Kazi or Mufti and two Maulvies. The collector had a general supervision over this court. Sadar Nizamat Adalat was established at Calcutta to hear appeals from the Faujdari Adalats. It was presided by an Indian Judge known as Daroga Adalat who was to be assisted by the chief Kazi, Chief Mufti and three Maulvies. The Sadar Nizamat Adalat was supervized by the Governor and the Council.
Warren Hatings appointed Sir Elijah Impey, the Chief Justice of Supreme Court, as the sole judge of the Sadar Diwani Adalat. Warren Hastings created a new department at Calcutta. Its head was called as the Remembrancer of Criminal Courts. His duty was to receive and analyse all the reports from the Mofussil Faujdari Adalats and prepare extracts from them.
