During the last days of the 19th century, Lord Curzon (1899-1905), the then viceroy of India, proposed, primarily for administrative purposes, the creation of North West Frontier Province which got the approval of Lord George F. Hamilton, the then His Majestys Secretary of State for India on 20th December 1900.
The province having formally founded on 9th November, 1901, (the Kings birth day) had to get one Judicial Commissioner.The N.-W.F.P. Law and Justice Regulation No. VII of 1901 was enacted by the Governor-General-in-Council in order to establish judicial institutions. The Regulation repealed the Punjab Courts Act, 1884. Parts II and III of the Regulation deal with criminal justice, police and civil justice respectively; while part IV provides in detail the constitution and powers of courts. Section 2 (1) (a) read with section 42 of the said Regulation defined the duties and responsibilities of the Judicial Commissioner who was stated to be the highest civil and criminal court of appeal or revision in the province.The Judicial Commissioner was also entrusted with duties of general superintendence and control of all other courts, which were made subordinate to his office. He was to appoint Registrar and make rules consistent with the Regulation and any other enactment for the time being in force.
The Regulation, besides the Court of the Judicial Commissioner and the Courts of Small Causes, established under the Provincial Small Causes Courts Act, 1887, created such other civil courts as pisional Court; the Court of the District Judge; the Court of the Subordinate Judge and the Court of Munsif.According to the Regulation, appointments to and removal or suspension from the posts of the pisional Judge, District Judge and subordinate judge were to be made by the Local Government; and of Munsif by the Judicial Commissioner.
In 1931 further steps were taken to consolidate and to amend the law relating to courts in the province. In this respect the N.-W.F.P. Regulation No. 1 of 1931 was promulgated. The Regulation, while keeping intact some important powers of the Judicial Commissioner such as precedence over other Judges of the court, distribution of business, administration, and the highest Civil and Criminal Court of Appeal or Revision, provided three classes of courts, viz.
The Court of the District Judge
The Court of the Additional Judge
the Court of the Subordinate Judge
