Administative Law is related to public administration and hence it existed in every country having some form of government. It is as old as administration itself. In India the trace of Administrative law has been discovered in the well organized administrative system under the Mauryas, the Guptas, Mughals and also under the East India Company. With its initial growth in the twentieth century administrative law has gained an articulate and definite presence as a system in democratic countries in modern times. Rule of Law prevails in India by virtue of the British legal system which has been adopted by the Indian Constitution. Rule of law disapproves exercise of arbitrariness on the part of the government. The significant achievement in the sphere of rule of law is judicial review of administrative action to ascertain that the executive acts according to law. While deciding various cases, the Supreme Court of India has upheld the importance of rule of law in serving the needs of people without violating their rights.
