The principle of reasoned decision in administrative law is oft considered as a principle of natural justice, in spirit and in practice. The importance of a reasoned decision is derived not only from its aim of showing receipt of justice by the citizens but is also emanated from its existence as a valid discipline for administrative authorities. Following the rising scope of judicial review, it is increasingly deemed necessary for the administrative decisions to contain reasons so that their review may be conducted expeditiously and efficiently. In this context, it thus becomes imperative to understand the aspects and rationale behind the relevance of reasoned decisions in Indian jurisprudence with special reference to its counterparts, that is, United Kingdom and United States of America.
