Current Affairs Questions on 1 to 5 January 2019 :
Which High Court came into existence on 1 January 2019 and thus became the 25th High Court of India?
A. Goa High Court
B. Andhra Pradesh High Court
C. Delhi High court
D. Gujarat High court
Answer: B
Explanation: The Andhra Pradesh High Court at the newly formed capital Amaravati came into existence from 1 January 2019. On the other hand the bifurcated High Court of Telangana also came into existence as a separate entity on the same date. Justice T B.N. Radhakrishnan was sworn in as the Chief Justice of the Telangana High Court. Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan administered oath of office to him.  The Governor administered oath to Justice C. Praveen Kumar as the new acting chief justice of the Andhra Pradesh high court on the same day. With this the erstwhile Hyderabad High Court ceased to exist. Telangana High Court thus became the 25th High Court of India. It is worth mentioning that the advocates and legal fraternity have been demanding separate high court for Telangana ever since the separate state was carved out in 2014. However, the things moved fast after Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu gave in writing that the High Court in his state Capital, Amaravati will be readied by 31 December 2018. The Supreme Court had directed the Centre to bifurcate the existing high court in Hyderabad. As per the notification, 12 judges, over 360 district and civil judges have been allotted to the new Telangana state.
