How do lawyers address a judge in India, your honor or my lord?

In lower courts like district or any other tribunal, lawyers address judges as your Honour but in case of Session Court and High Court lawyers generally address the presiding officer as Lordship or Your Honour. However Supreme Court has clearly informed that there is no need to address judges as Lordship because they cannot become Lord and they are human but still lawyers address the judges as Lordship in Higher Courts.
