Audi Alterem Partem: Right to fair hearing

Audi Alterem Partem: Right to fair hearing


In India, the principles of natural justice are firmly grounded in Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution. Principles of natural justice are attracted whenever a person suffers a civil consequence or a prejudice is caused to him in any administrative action. Mainly there are two principles:


1. Nemo in propria causa judex, esse debet – no one should be made a judge in his own cause, or the rule against bias.


2. Audi alteram partem – no one should be condemned unheard.
