The paper seeks to provide a comprehensive review of the India Extradition Law and Policy exploring their dynamic nature by discussing various treaties. To present an illustrative analysis of the existing Extradition system in India and to suggest ways to strengthen its Extradition process, the paper reviews the India-U.K Extradition relations. The rise in economic offenders is a global concern. The paper has analyzed data available with reference to economic offences in India which presents a very low success rate in Extradition of Fugitives to India. And gives reasons as to why there has been such a tremendous rise in economic offences in India. The rise of economic offences was one of the prime reasons for the enactment of the Fugitive Economic Offender’s Act 2018 by the Government of India. The paper seeks to answer the question as to whether the act has actually had a substantial impact on Extradition proceedings or not by taking as an example the Vijay Mallya Extradition case.
