The Supreme Court Sample Clauses

The Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has played a very important role in the legal history of bonded labour. As a result of several very known decisions (see § II-2), it has helped to throw light on the notion of bonded labour and has thus provided valuable decisive elements to members of the administration charged with the correct application of the law. . These judgments express a real desire for social justice, often in rather lyrical terms, proclaiming that justice must serve the needs of the poorest and the most humble. Through these decisions, the Court consistently recalls the constitutional responsibilities of the states (cf. People's Union for democratic Rights and others vs Union of India and others) and sometimes orders them to apply the law correctly (Bandua Mukti Morcha vs State of India for example). It also plays a very important role in ordering various states to carry out investigations and to identify bonded labourers as was the case in Tamil Nadu (People's Union for Civil liberties vs State of Tamil Nadu and others) leading to the report to the Commission on bonded labour in Tamil Nadu in 1995 which was in turn followed by a field investigation that enabled 25,000 bonded labourers to be freed. In fact the judges in a decision dated 6 March 199541 asked 13 states to launch enquiries and to do the work of identifying bonded labourers. Of the 13 states, only Tamil Nadu was able to provide the information needed.
