The master-servant relationship—a topic covered in this RESEARCH PAPER—is vicarious responsibility. When one person is made liable for another's acts or inactions, this is referred to as having vicarious liability. The concept of vicarious liability is given in this research article, along with an explanation of the many conditions that must be satisfied to establish vicarious liability. The many terminologies and varied interactions are described. The goals are initially set before interpretation and case law are offered to back up the claimed purposes and research issues. In-depth information about vicarious liability is given in this article. The study as a whole is based on secondary data, which includes documents from many sources like journals, articles, research papers, internet portals, and other materials. An overview of vicarious responsibility is given in the introduction, followed by a summary of the three different situations in which someone may be held accountable for the actions of another in the interpretation section, and finally, case law examples are given in the conclusion section to help the reader understand the subject even more. Administration, which refers to the state or government's accountability for the wrongdoings of its agents, is a complex topic, especially in developing countries where the range of the state's activities is expanding. Both the British common law principles of public law and constitutional requirements control government tort liability. Vicarious responsibility is when one person is held responsible for another's actions. As a result, in a circumstance involving vicarious liability, both parties are accountable for each other's actions. The person issuing the order and the one carrying it out are equally responsible in a case of vicarious liability. As a result, employers are responsible for any legal wrongs done by workers while they are on the job. Regarding state accountability, the constitution takes the following position: Article 300, clause (1), provides that the union of India and the state governments may sue or be sued on behalf of the Indian government. It is essential to comprehend the administration's present liability rules since they closely mirror those of the East India Company.
