Abstract

All penalties are based on the standard that a punishment for wrongdoing needs to be
levied. Twofold reasons for imposing the penalty are: Firstly, the belief that it is both right and
fair for a person who has done wrong to pay for it; secondly, the perception that penalizing
lawyers discourages anyone from doing anything unethical. This sentence discussion remains
most widely applicable issue, bearing in view the circumstance which has been carried on by at
present. Capital punishment continues to be an important part of the Indian (criminal) justice
system. India is a very well-developed country but the crime rate is still rising at the same time.
There is plenty of legislation in India to deter and regulate crime, yet crime rates are increasing
because the fines for the offences are not adequate. The penalty should be extreme to minimize
to crime rate. The primary purpose of all the penalties is to pay the wrongdoer a fine. Punishment
in India is of various forms, such as death sentence, life jail, imprisonment, etc.' this is
considered the most extreme form of punishment. This article addresses two main ideas related
to the death penalty, namely reformist theory and preventive theory
