In a number of nations, privatization is the sole focus of government policy, it may be driven solely by political and economic motives, but at the same time privatisation pose many of the legal issues. The term "privatisation" has been given various meanings, but it generally refers to the transition of a government-controlled industry, bank, or other entity to private ownership. As in certain countries, the government may allow only social services to be privatised, with the government still having supreme control over decision-making and management. While the legislation of some countries provides for full privatisation, others do not. “Apart from the constitutionality and validity of the privatisation decision, there are public law and administrative law problems that often arise with privatization decisions as When privatization is at it peak, macro-level industrialization emerges which might progress to the point where the government's position is diminished and private individuals take over. Therefore, this research paper discusses the aim of privatisation and the types of privatisation also to understand the enforceability of administrative law principles to privatisation challenges in India
