This legal research paper explores the concept of judicial review in India, with a focus on analysing recent case law. Judicial review is a constitutional doctrine that enables the judiciary to review the actions of the executive and legislative branches of government to ensure that they are consistent with the constitution. The paper begins by providing an overview of the constitutional provisions governing judicial review in India, followed by an analysis of key judicial review cases decided by the Indian courts in recent years. The cases are discussed in terms of the legal principles established by the courts and the impact they have had on the balance of power between the judiciary, executive and legislative branches. Finally, the paper concludes by highlighting the challenges and opportunities for further development of judicial review jurisprudence in India.
