Explanation: Though the phrase ‘Judicial Review’ has nowhere been used in the Constitution, the provisions of several Articles explicitly confer the power of judicial review on the Supreme Court and the High Courts. These provisions are explained below:

  1. Article 13 declares that all laws that are inconsistent with or in derogation of the Fundamental Rights shall be null and void.
  2. Article 32 guarantees the right to move the Supreme Court for the enforcement of Fundamental Rights and empowers the Supreme Court to issue directions or orders or writs for that purpose.
  3. Article 131 provides for the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in centre-state and inter-state disputes.
