The best legislators can legislate upon certainties, at most, some uncertainties. Prediction of the future is not a legislative means to indefinite issues at a point in time that are yet to be determined. It means that legislation complete in itself may well need solutions at a future point in time. To brace any such events, extraordinary tools exist to guide a Court of Justice. One such power well within a Court is referred to as Inherent Power. This paper highlights the developing jurisprudence through case laws concerning Section 482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) 1973.
