India places 88th out of 102 countries in rule of law performance of civil justice system

The Hindu reported that the Rule of Law Index 2015 by the US-based World Justice Project has placed India 59th out of 102 countries globally for its rule of law performance on a number of metrics.

On criminal justice India ranked 44th, while for civil justice it ranked 88th globally, third in South Asia and 19th among “lower middle income countries”.

India’s ratings are dogged most by “perceptions of corruption, of the effectiveness of the civil justice system, the regulatory enforcement environment and the criminal justice system, all of which reflect that less than half of the respondents showed faith in these systems’ ability to deliver justice”, according to The Hindu, which has prepared a detailed infographic of the findings.
