The point of this study is to examine the notion of administrative law as well as its quasi-legislative and quasi-judicial powers. Administrative law is the body of legislation that governs the executive branch of government in order to control its operations and protect the general public from abuses of power perpetrated by the executive or its agents. Administrative law is the corpus of legislation that regulates the actions of government administrative agencies. Rulemaking, adjudication, and enforcement of a specified regulatory agenda are all examples of government agency activity. Administrative law is confined to the functions and processes of administrative agencies as a body of law. It is restricted to the authorities' adjudication or rule-making abilities. It is a relatively recent field of law that has changed through time and will continue to do so as society's requirements change. The goal of administrative law is to align the Executive's discretionary powers with the 'Rule of law.' Administrative law resolves disagreements, but it is also a battleground. There are principles and values, and judicial review plays a vital role in developing and upholding them. It has grown more important in industrialised societies as the connection between administrative officials and the general public has gotten more complicated. To control these complications, some legislation is required, which may aid in maintaining regularity and preventing the abuse of administrative authority. This broadening of duties ushered in a new era of administration and administrative law. Administrative law has been called the most significant legal development of the twentieth century. From laissez-faire to parens patria, governments have progressed. A similar tendency was seen in other regions of the globe as a result of this evolution.1
