Abstract: "The T N Godavarman vs Union of India case in the Supreme Court, also known as the forest case is an example of the judiciary overstepping its constitutional mandate. The court has effectively taken over the day-to-day governance of Indian forests leading to negative social, ecological, and administrative effects."
