The idea of justice is a concept from the primitive times in the society. Justice is not merely right determination and adjudication of disputes and enforcement of Law, but is so comprehensive in its meaning and import that it takes with in its ambit the whole of political, social, juristic and moral idealism. Dharma is a concept which originated in India, it has very close relation with justice. Jurists and philosophers have seen in the concept of justice their own ideal. In its particular meaning it means proper or equitable distribution of the goods of existence, correction of wrongs and exchange of goods. It has thus distributive, corrective and commutative functions. This paper talks about the idea of justice with special reference of the concept of personal freedom by Amartya Sen.
