Annotation: This book explains the concepts of natural justice and social justice to judges, administrators, lawyers, and law students. The main thesis of the book is set forth in three chapters dealing with the idea of justice, the philosophy of justice under the Indian constitution, and the concept of natural justice.
Abstract: The author takes a juristic approach throughout the book and traces the transition of these concepts of justice from philosophy to the practice. While the first section provides an overview of justice, the second section deals in depth with the concept of natural justice, the constitutional sanctity of the concept, the minimum requirements of justice, determination of rights, bias, and exceptions and alternatives to natural justice. The discussion of social justice covers the mainstream of social justice, socialism and social justice; the eradication of social evils; and public interest litigation. Several chapters deal with topics related to political and economic justice including the political justice in guaranteed rights, industrial peace, and compensation and debt laws. The final chapter is a dissertation on the concept of social justice.
