Administrative Trajectory of Deportation of Foreigners in India - Where Does the Discretion End?

Vibhana Kanwar, Amity Law School, Noida.


‘Administrative Trajectory of Deportation of Foreigners in India- Where does the Discretion end?’ allows the reader to delve into the administrative practice of deportation of foreigners in India. The article focuses on discretion practiced by both, the administrative authority and courts, in deciding the fate of foreigners in the Sovereign country of India.

This administrative system is further analyzed from the lens of delegation and natural justice to comprehend how the orders of the expulsion of foreigners vary based on legal and illegal migrants in the country, despite both being categorized as ‘’foreigners’ under the same legislation, i.e the Foreigners Act, 1946.

The author is optimistic that a look into this long article would reveal the administrative application of deportation laws, and how uniform legislation for all migrants does not do justice to the different classes of foreigners deported.
