But however, to gain people’s support for a law, the law has to reflect the public conscience. Testing this notion against the fact that India is witnessing an increase in crime rate, it becomes very clear that the laws are failing to do their intended duties. To cure this situation, whether the laws have to be made stricter or should be implementation be better, is the question which the author will be addressing in this article.
Keywords: Law, Rights, Public conscience, Crime rate, Implementation.
