Administration of Civil Justice in India: Ancient and Modern Perspectives
MetadataShow full item record
Since the Vedic period, India is known for its commitment to justice, democratic values, the rule of law, and the welfare of individuals. The thrust of the chapter is an examination of tools of civil justice in ancient as well as modern texts underlining the bond of 'social contract'. The analysis aims to identify similarities and gaps in the traditional and contemporary aspects of civil justice in India. These findings would enable legal scholars and practitioners to draw from, and to connect, the history of accumulated legal guidance and reasoning to the modern mechanism of justice. The examination of those concepts in the context of contemporary relevance accompanied with the principles of interpretation can maximise the utility of these principles. The discussion may offer important clues for policymakers, community organisations, law-making agencies, and citizens to strengthen their faith in the judicial system, being a blend of aboriginal and modern.
