IJR 1: 1. Population of states and UTs for which Court News shows combined data for subordinate courts has been combined, and hence they will show an identical value.

IJR 2: 1. Population of states and UTs that share a High Court, or for which Court News shows combined data for subordinate courts, has been combined. Hence, they will show an identical value. 2. Due to bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana courts from January 2019, Q4 data of 2018-19 has been used for them. 3. Court News gives combined figures for subordinate courts for West Bengal and Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Hence, each pair has identical values for these indicators.
