Why is the Judiciary kept independent of the control of the Executive and the Legislature
The framers of the Indian Constitution were very particular about keeping the Judiciary free from the control of the Legislature and the Executive. This is because administration of justice has a special significance on the rights of an individual, and needs to be protected from the influence of the executive as well as administrative functions. Also, there was a need for the neutral and impartial dispensation of justice, if the judgments were to go against the Government. Hence the Judiciary was kept independent to ensure the protection of human rights in our democracy.
