Indian judiciary has been considered as the guardian and protector of the Indian Constitution. This paper analyses the conceptualization and operationalization of judicial activities. The role of judicial activism cannot be negated or overlooked as it played a significant role in providing justice to the underprivileged sections of the society, indigent individuals, socially and educationally backward classes, victims of trafficking, undertrial prisoners, beggar and transgender. The author also focuses on public interest litigations where Supreme Court exercised its epistolary jurisdiction which leads activism to overreach.
