The Supreme Court of India has recently directed its registry to refrain from referring to trial courts as lower courts in any communication or reference. The Apex Court said even the record of Trial Courts should not be referred to as Lower Court Record (LCR).

The Divisional Bench of Justices Abhay S Oka and Ujjal Bhuyan passed the order while hearing a criminal appeal. The order further reads:

“It will be appropriate if the Registry of this Court stops referring to the Trial Courts as ‘Lower Courts’. Even the record of the Trial Court should not be referred to as Lower Court Record (LCR). Instead, it should be referred as the Trial Court Record (TCR). The Registrar (Judicial) to take a note of this order. A copy of this order be sent to him,”

The Supreme Court also asked its registry to call for the soft copy of trial court record of the respective case.
