The legislative and executive bodies of the Government are strictly constricted to making and implementing laws, leaving judiciary with the most important task of all- interpretation and application of these laws. That is why the Indian Judiciary is often perceived as the guardian of the rights of the citizens. Our judiciary is considered to be an institution of high regard. Clearly, there is a deviation. Indian Judiciary has been constituted in a very systematic and precise manner. Along with the hierarchy of courts, there also exist special courts for special causes. The powers granted and the functions delegated to, are carefully crafted to ensure fair and speedy justice. In order to uphold the principles of the nation and ensure fearless deliverance of justice, the judiciary also possesses a degree of independence.
