The government of India after assuming welfare state focussed more on passing of welfare enactments where decision making power vested in the hands of the administration. One of the innovative provisions adopted by the Forty-second Amendment of the Constitution was the provision for the setting up of Administrative Tribunals. The main objective of establishing tribunals is to provide a speedy and inexpensive trail. The other significant ground for institution of tribunals was that the ordinary courts are habituated to deal cases according to law with complex formalities. While adjudication of disputes are not necessarily on the basis of technical questions of law in administrational issues, but the need of the hour requires consideration of the public interest. Further, tribunals are bodies having technical expertise dealing fairly with the issues by following the principles of natural justice. The technicalities, inadequacy and effectiveness of judicial system lead to multiplicity of administrative tribunals.These quasi-judicial powers acquired by the administration must maintain inevitably procedural safeguards & transparency while arriving at their decisions and observe Principles of Natural Justice. These administrative bodies which are established in public interest have been comprehensively modified in Finance Act 2017. As Justice Blackstone said it is precisely in situations such as these that the subdivision of power into different channels was designed to prevent power rushing down in one single torrent, sweeping away all it encounters in its wake
