constitutionaland legal rights enforced through courts- civil or criminal ,at all level of judiciary , that is trial court , high court , supreme court or quasi judicial institutions.

The officers can reach the level of secretary to the government of Indian with the passage of time according to their suitability. Likewise, legislative counsels are also appointed for official languages wing of the legislative department for Hindi and regional languages.
