This paper offers a thorough critical study of Section 151 of the Civil Procedure Code (CPC). Courts are given the inherent power to issue orders under Section 151 in order to uphold the rule of law and prevent the abuse of the legal system. The paper dives into the idea and principles of Section 151, tracing its origins and examining its function within the Indian legal system. The paper investigates the position of Section 151 in India, concentrating on judicial creativity over this section and the scope of its application. The study looks into the various conflicts and difficulties that may arise when these powers are used to the extent of discretion and rise to the possibility of abuse. The paper also offers alternative revisions and future orientations for this provision, aiming at improving its effectiveness in answering the current demands of Indian civil litigation, through a critical analysis of the body of existing literature and legal precedents.
