India became an independent democratic republic in 1947. The Constitution was adopted by the Constituent Assembly of India on the 26th of November 1949 and became effective on 26th January, 1950. The Indian Penal Code was drafted, enacted, and brought into force by 1862 under the supervision of Thomas Babington Macaulay. The Indian Constitution derives its base from the Government of India Act, 1935 passed by the British Parliament.

The origin of Indian law can be traced from the Primary sources and secondary sources of law. The primary sources of Indian law are customs, judicial precedents, statutes, and personal law. These sources are mainly the laws passed by the Parliament or the State Legislatures. The President and the Governor have limited power to issue ordinances. The secondary sources of Indian law are the judgments passed by the Supreme Court, High courts, and some specialized tribunals.  In the Indian Legal system, the judiciary is independent in structure. The appellate court of the judiciary is the Supreme Court of India.
