Ministry of Law and Justice is
the oldest limb of the Government of India dating
back to 1833 when the Charter Act 1833 enacted by
the British Parliament. The said Act vested for
the first time legislative power in a single
authority, namely the Governor General in Council.
By virtue of this authority and the authority
vested under him under section 22 of the Indian
Councils Act 1861 the Governor General in Council
enacted laws for the country from 1834 to 1920.
After the commencement of the Government of India
Act 1919 the legislative power was exercised by
the Indian Legislature constituted thereunder. The
Government of India Act 1919 was followed by the
Government of India Act 1935.
