CHANGING ROLE OF THE INDIAN JUDICIARY

During the 64 years of its existence, the Indian Judiciary has made significant contribution to the system of governance that has impacted the life of the people and the nation.  The Supreme Court has observed that the Constitution must be construed in wide and liberal manner so that constitutional provisions does not get fossilized but remain flexible enough to meet newly emerging problems and challenges. Supreme Court has brought about democratization of remedies for implementing the citizens rights. The performance of India’s Supreme court is commendable. It has acted as a promoter of peace, cordiality and balance and coordination between different organs of the government. At one time it was thought that the role of judiciary is only to interpret the laws and the regulations and provide judgments exclusively from the legal point of view. This perspective has undergone a sea change in the recent times.
