Article 124 provides for the establishment and constitution of Supreme Court of India, which is the apex court of India. It was established on 28th January, 1950 i.e. two days after the commencement of the Constitution.

The sanctioned strength of the judges is 31, consisting of the Chief Justice and 30 other judges.

The Chief Justice and other judges of the Supreme Court are appointed by the President of India. While appointing the Chief Justice, the President is constitutionally required to consult such other judges of the Supreme Court as he deems proper, but outgoing Chief Justice is always consulted.
