‘When more Powers vest in the hands of the authority, the real purpose of the law is neglected’. The ultimate solution to this is delegation of power to different classes/ ranks of people in accordance with the statutes. Delegation of powers allow the authority to focus on other important matters and implementation of law is done in a better manner when powers are Delegated. This research Paper expresses the intention of one such live example of delegated legislation w.r.t. Indian Forest Act, 1927. The power/Authority which trickles down to various levels has certain advantages as well as Lacunae’s and this paper tries to bring forth those gaps. This research paper also lightly touches upon the newly tabled bill amendment bill of 2019. Analysis has been done using relevant case laws and live examples ending with suggestions.
