The power of the Supreme Court is called the Judicial Review power. This concept is borrowed from the United States Constitution. Judicial review is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution of India. It includes:

• The court re-examines the laws and rules of the legislature and executive in cases that come before them; in litigation cases.

• The court decides the constitutional validity of the laws and rules of the government

• The court rejects that law or any of its part which is found to be unconstitutional or not in favor of the Constitution.

By definition “Judicial Review refers to the power of the judiciary to interpret the constitution and to declare any such law or order of the legislature and executive void if it finds them in conflict the Constitution of India”.
