About National Symposium
Constitution, as a fundamental norm, includes the entire framework of the nation along with the principles and instruments to achieve the desired ends of developing the nation. But the framework keeps on changing as it is never permanent. Some of the essential features of the Constitution are independence of judiciary, respect for individual rights, and impartial hearings of those who are charged with criminal offences. Criminal justice system is a part of administration of justice embodied in the Constitution. The Indian Criminal Justice system, a legacy of British system, has four subsystems viz. legislature, enforcement, adjudication and corrections. Within their limited jurisdictions mentioned in the Indian Constitution, these subsystems (Parliament, Police, courts, prisons etc.) perform their duties. The Symposium aims to form an opinion about the Justice System and calls for suggestions that can make Indian Criminal Justice System strong enough to deal with rights and obligations of both the victim as well as the accused.
