Implementation of Law
- Laws passed by the government have to be implemented otherwise the benefit of the laws will not reach the citizens.
- It is the duty of the government to enforce the laws.
- Enforcement is even more important when the law seeks to protect the weak from the strong.
- To ensure that every worker gets fair wages, the government has to regularly inspect work sites and punish those who violate the law. When workers are poor or powerless, they accept low wages for the fear of losing their job.
- Through making, enforcing and upholding these laws, the government can control the activities of individuals or private companies so as to ensure social justice.
- Many of these laws have their basis in the Fundamental Rights guaranteed by the Indian Constitution.
