Judicial decisions have very strong binding force. In jurisprudential language it is called as "Doctrine of Precedent" . A precedent is a statement of law found in a judicial decision of a High Court or a superior Court, meant to be followed by the same courts as also by subordinate courts.
Indian Constitution supports to the Doctrine of Precedent u/Art 141 & it provides that ' the law declared by the Supreme Court shall be binding on all courts within the territory of India.' But S.C has power & authority to overrule its own earlier decisions.
Precedent can be classified into 1. i Original ii. Declaratory & 2. i. authoritative ii. persuasive
1. i. Original - which creat or establish new rule of law.
ii. Declaratory - which is only declaratory of existing law.
2. i. Authoritative- which are binding upon judges who interprete the law & which can be source of law.
ii. Persuasive - They being only of a guiding charachterare not considered as legal source of law..
