Detailed Solution for Test: Supreme Court And High Courts - Question 1
Judicial Review is the power of the Courts to determine the constitutionality of Legislative act and executions orders. To the extent of such violation, in so far as the Fundamental Rights are concerned, Judicial Review has been provided in the Constitution under Article 13 and in Article 32 and Article 226 in the form of jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and the High Court. While judicial review over administrative action has evolved on the lines of common law doctrines such as ‘proportionality’, ‘legitimate expectation’, ‘reasonableness’ and principles of natural justice, the Supreme Court of India and the various High Courts were given the power to rule on the constitutionality of legislative as well as administrative actions to protect and enforce the fundamental rights guaranteed in Part III of the Constitution. Hence the scope of judicial review before Indian courts has evolved in three dimensions :
1.to ensure fairness in administrative action.
2. to protect the constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights of citizens and 
3.to rule on questions of legislative competence between the centre and the states.
