History of Patiala House District Courts

The Patiala House Courts complex is situated near India Gate in central Delhi, India.  The main part is housed in the Patiala House, the former palace of the Maharaja of Patiala. It is today known as the main building. The Patiala House Court Complex is built in an area measuring 31872 Sq. Mtrs. The whole complex is divided into five parts i.e. Main Building, Publication Building, Annexe Building, Lock-up Building & MEA Building.

The complex consists of 36 Courts, 1 Family Court, Delhi Legal Services Authorities Office and various other branches as well as Lawyers Chambers.

As the population of Delhi grew, in March 1997 Patiala House was converted to become one of three court complexes in the city, after criminal courts from Parliament Street were shifted here.

In 2001, 54 judges were stationed at Patiala House Courts, which have jurisdiction over the New Delhi, South Delhi and South West Delhi districts.

A Library is also functional for Judicial Officers at ground floor of the publication building. Judicial Officers can access all the reference books, journals, bare acts, Swamys’ books, general books, law journals, law software etc. It also looks after the binding of law journals, purchasing of newspapers and magazines for the Ld.
