COVID-19 Pandemic caught India off-guard and has wrought havoc in the lives of the people. First national and later local lockdowns had an adverse socio-economic impact. To meet the challenge the government invoked laws, framed policies, and adopted welfare measures to protect people, businesses and economy. The judiciary played a seminal role in ensuring accountability and even giving directions for better legal and policy implementation. The paper analyses the ways in which pandemic impacted Indian society, also the measures taken by the government and role played by the judiciary in meeting and containing the challenges thrown by the pandemic.
