Hierarchy of courts in India

The federal system of power-sharing is the foundation of Indian democracy. The legislative and executive branches have the power to enact and execute laws. The Judiciary, however, has sole jurisdiction over the interpretation of laws and the defence of citizens' rights. As a result, it is known as the "custodian of the constitution," which refers to the protector and interpreter. In cases involving constitutional validity and the law, the Judiciary has the last say. Law students often seem confused about this topic. Let's discuss the hierarchy of courts in detail.

Global Hunger Index 2022: What is India's rank?

Even though enough food is produced worldwide to feed everyone, up to 828 million people still go without food. World hunger is increasing, affecting approximately 10% of people worldwide, after consistently dropping for a decade. Sources from the Union Health Ministry claimed on Tuesday that the Global Hunger Index exaggerates the severity of hunger, lacks statistical rigour, and has numerous flaws resulting from India placing 107th out of 121 countries in this year's rankings. They claimed that the study "deliberately ignores the huge efforts undertaken by the government to maintain food security for the populace, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic" and that it "does not genuinely quantify hunger." According to sources, three of the four indicators we utilised were connected to children's health and could not be generalised to the entire population.
