Naman Srivastava, Bharti Vidyapeeth's New Law College, Pune


Defamation has been part of our system since the inception of the law. But defamation in India has been taken with a very light approach with most of the cases never seeing an outcome. The use of defamation in India has been a topic of debate in recent times. Defamation has become one of the most exploited parts of our legal system. This paper attempts to open a comparative outlook between the defamation cases in India and other countries along with the issues faced by defamation cases in India. This paper also attempts to showcase how the law of defamation is exploited in India and the plethora of pending defamation cases in India.
