There were seven grades of the civil court:
- The Judges of Small cause Courts
- Tehsildars, Naib-tehsildars, Munsifs, and Honorary Civil Judges.
- Assistant Commissioners and Extra-Assistant Commissioners.
- Judicial Assistant and Subordinate Judges with appellate powers.
- Deputy Commissioners and District Judges.
- The Courts of Commissioners.
- The Chief Court.
The parallel judicial organization came into existence along with the administrative organization. In the District, the District Judge’s court was the principal court of original jurisdiction. The Punjab Courts Act, 1884 was amended in 1888 with the object to enable the Chief Court to deal with the accumulated arrears, more expeditiously. The Revenue Courts were constituted in Punjab under the Punjab Tenancy Act, 1887. The Small Cause Courts Act, 1887 invested powers to the Munsif, who was also called Sub Judge. Three small cause Courts were established at Amritsar, Shimla & Delhi the Small Cause Court is still functioning at Amritsar, which one of its kinds in the entire Punjab and Haryana, Prior to this there used to be four Small Cause Courts at Delhi, Amritsar, Lahore, and Peshawar which were established in 1861. In the General Report on the Administration for the year 1862-63, some of the Judges of Small Cause Courts namely T.H.Thornton, Capt. C.A. Momohan, J.C.Murphy, L. Berkeley, and R.R.Scarlett were especially appreciated for their excellent work and disposal. Subsequently in the year 1947, the Judge of Amritsar Small Cause Court was vested with delegated powers under the Provincial Insolvency Act and the Guardians and Wards Act. During the late thirties, the crime rate in Amritsar increases tremendously resulting in an increase in the number of criminal cases in the district. The average number of murder cases rose from 38 in 1934 to 71 in 1939. During this period, the criminal work increased so greatly that it was found necessary to appoint one or more Additional Sessions Judges. Senior Subordinate Judge, Amritsar exercised control over the process serving agency consisting of civil Nazar, ten Naib Nazars, ten bailiffs, and 96 process servers in 1947.

After annexation, the Deputy Commissioners were in charge of the district, who were Commissioners were authorized to deal with the civil suits of having value Rs.1000/-. Extra Assistant commissioners performed both civil and criminal functions and the lowest court was that of the Tehsildar’s court. The Punjab Courts Act XVII of 1877, repealed the Chief Court Act, 1866, and consolidated and re-stated the law, relating to the Chief Court. The Punjab Courts Act, 1877 was repealed and re-enacted by the Punjab Court Act, 1884 9XVIII of 1884), without any significant change regarding the constitution, powers, and jurisdiction of the Chief Court. The main reason for the repeal of the Act of 1877 was to reorganize the Civil courts in the Province. Under the new Act, Divisional courts were established for the performance of judicial functions and the Commissioners were relieved of their judicial duties. Subordinate Judges and Munsifs were appointed to discharge purely judicial work. The Punjab Court of Wards Act, Which came into force on June 25, 1903, established courts of wards in the province. Further changes in the subordinate judicial set up were brought by the Punjab Courts Act, 1914; where four classes of courts were set up, namely, the Court of District Judge, the Court of Additional District Judge, the Court of Subordinate Judge, and the Court of Munsif. Later through the Punjab Courts Act, 1918, a landmark, which continued with the minor amendment as the court of Munsif was abolished. In addition to these courts, Courts of Small Causes were established under the Provincial Small Causes Courts Act. By this Act of 1918, the administration of the Judicial Courts at Amritsar was controlled by the High Court of Judicature at Lahore whose vast jurisdiction ranged over 28 districts including Shimla, Gurgaon, Kangra, Gujranwala, Lyallpur, Hissar, etc. As per records available, Mr.H.V.Riddell was District Judge, Amritsar in the year 1885, Mr. H.S. Cott Smith was the District and Sessions Judge in the year 1900.
