Supreme Court's Expanding Role in Indian Governance
Issue
#16
India's Supreme Court, the guardian of justice, has embarked
on a transformative journey, redefining its role in shaping the
nation's governance. Its evolving influence spans across
various critical parameters, from environmental stewardship
and safeguarding fundamental rights to championing public
interest litigation. This redefinition of judicial power is
evident through exemplary cases, recent news, and statistical data.
Environmental Management: In a country grappling with
environmental challenges, the Supreme Court has emerged as the main
advocate of ecological conservation. The Arei forest case in 2020 is a
good example. By intervening for the subway parking lot and banning
the felling of trees, the court not only demonstrated its commitment to
environmental protection, but also set an important precedent for stable
development. This action underscores the Court's newfound role in
promoting eco-conscious governance.
Safeguarding Fundamental Rights: The protection of fundamental
rights is a cornerstone of India's democratic ideals. The Supreme Court
has played a pivotal role in redefining these rights, most notably with its
landmark decision to decriminalize homosexuality by striking down
Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in 2018. This monumental move
emphasized the Court's unwavering commitment to upholding individual
liberties and ensuring equal protection under the law.
Public Interest Litigation (PIL): The Court's expanded influence is
further evidenced by its active engagement with public interest litigation.
Whether addressing concerns about air pollution, advocating electoral
reforms, or addressing pressing public health issues, the Court has
become a beacon of responsive governance and effective policy
implementation.
In the realm of environmental protection, the Court's actions have led to
an increase in public awareness and activism against illegal deforestation
and habitat destruction. Recent data reveals a shift in public attitudes
towards environmental conservation, largely driven by the Court's
proactive stance.
The Supreme Court's involvement in cases related to privacy, data
protection, and digital rights, such as the 'Aadhaar' case, illustrates its
Harsh Kumar
ability to adapt to contemporary challenges and protect citizens'
rights in the digital age.
The Court's recent actions in matters related to COVID-19 management,
vaccine distribution, and pandemic response have been instrumental in
ensuring a coordinated national effort during the crisis.
As India's Supreme Court redefines its role, it not only asserts its
authority but also embodies the adaptability and responsiveness required
to meet the evolving needs of Indian democracy. While overhauling the
judiciary, courts continue to
be a strong pillar of Indian governance, upholding justice and democratic
standards. Its development has the potential to lead the country towards
more responsible governance, environmental security and protection of
human rights, thereby supporting India's message of growth for a just and
equal life.
