The Court Fee Act, 1870, which is a pre-independence and pre-Constitution law extended to Arunachal Pradesh by virtue of its extension clause is followed by all courts in the state as per Assam Court Fees (Amendment) Act, 1972 as the state does not have a high court of its own.
The Union Law and Justice ministry on March 6 this year directed all the states to enact their own state acts on court fees as the Court Fees Act, 1870 is being proposed to be repealed by the central government.
