This research paper deals with the authority extent the administration has in disciplinary punishment, and the role of the Punishment Council, as a surveillance body, in establishing legaljustification behind punitive judgment. It is by ipso jure that the responsibility of carrying out disciplinary punishment lies upon the administration which is directly linked to the party which committed the violation. On the other hand, the Punishment Council holds an authoritative position only in terms of evaluating the graveness of the contravention and providing legaljustification for the punishment; otherwise, the act of punishment itself is the responsibility of the administration.

In this perspective, the research aims to deliberate two main related issues:

Defining and analyzing the administration concerned with the application of disciplinary punishment.

Penalty effectiveness and its justification
