Indian Military Laws have its origin from British Military Laws, primarily because of British Rule in India. Before independence, the Indian Army was largely governed by the provisions of the Indian Army Act 1911, Indian Army Rules 1911 and the Regulations for the Indian Army.
But after the commencement of our Constitution, necessity was felt to revise those Rules so as to modify the existing provisions in accordance with the new Constitutional provisions, to make the Act self sufficient by incorporating provisions of other enactments, to bridge the gap between Army and various civil laws relating to punishment and to remove the disparity between similar provisions of law applicable to the Armed forces of India.
As a result of this The Army Act, 1950; The Air Force Act, 1950 and The Navy Act, 1957 were enacted. There was no provision for Appeal in these Acts from the orders of Court Martial.
