Justice is the profound principle of morality and philosophy. The word ‘Justice’ is derived from the Latin term ‘justitia’ [i]meaning righteousness and equity. Justice in its truest form treats equals equally and unequal unequally [ii], as quoted by Aristotle.

The Constitution of India guarantees its citizen ‘social, economic and political’ justice[iii]. The principles enshrined in the constitution ensures that all the systems in the polity work in consonance with each other and the justice system play an important role in safeguarding these principles. It is the sovereign duty of right-minded people of society to educate others and prevent the defenestration of justice by injustice.

To explore the justice system of a country, it is very important to comprehend the code of ethics and core essence of its foundation. If the citizens of the country are loyal and convinced with the fundamentals of the judiciary, then it is quite evident that the society is functioning fruitfully.

In this study, the author shall try to elaborate the nexus between the importance of justice and the development of society, how both the concepts corroborate each other’s effectiveness and how in a country like India, it is ever more important to strengthen the presence of judiciary in these dynamic times.
