Government intervention has almost permeated every facet of human endeavour in the modern Welfare State, prompting the introduction of numerous laws to rein in this steadily growing activity. Delegated legislation is required because the Legislature lacks the time to analyse, discuss, and adopt all the regulatory actions required to carry out the law that has been approved. Laws must be flawless in all technical aspects since the process of establishing laws has become complex and technological. Legislation that has been delegated simply means that it has been created with the consent of the legislature but by someone or something else. In India, the legislature has extensive delegation powers, although these powers are limited in order to prevent excessive delegation. The majority of the legislation is bureaucratic and is carried out by executives. Thus, creating a need of controls over delegated legislation as it is crucial to ascertain that the executive is not to be able to act arbitrarily. This study attempted to analyse two forms of control mechanisms i.e., Parliamentary and Procedural control over delegated legislation.
