Abstract

Capital punishment is a much-discussed issue worldwide. It is legal, however in India it
has rarely been voted for. The punishment imposition is not really supplemented by a chance of
life sentence commutation. If people look at Auto Shankar from 1995, it's only applied in four
different ways, names: 2004, 2004, 2004, 2012, Afzal Guru and 2015, 2015. Dhananjoy
Chatterjee. While several countries prohibit capital punishment, there has been no international
agreement on its legality so far. The Indian legal system also did struggle with either the
constitutionality and the situation of the death penalty. This article analyzes the constitutional
validity and indeed the circumstances in which it can be granted by means of specific cases and
the 'scarce' test imposed in the Bachan Singh case by the Supreme Court. The paper concludes by
observing that the Indian supreme court is leaving capital punishment because more emphasis is
placed upon the alternative methods of punishment and existing international developments it
against death penalty.
