Explore Administrative Law: Notes, Case Laws, and Study Material. Your key to understanding governance and regulations.

Administrative Law emerged as a subject to curb the misuse of power by the executive. As the concept of separation of powers cannot always be followed, the powers have been distributed to reduce work overload. The objective is to ensure reasonable control over the powers in a fair manner. It can be connoted as Quasi-legislation or Quasi-judicial as it takes responsibility to act within its power as well as beyond the power to which it is vested.

A careful view of the remedies serves to help those affected by the administration and implement and enforce the law peacefully.
