A V Dicey in his book The Law of the Constitution (1885) has given the following three implications of the doctrine of rule of law. Absence of arbitrary power, that is, no man is punished except for a breach of law Equality before the law, that is, equal subjection of all citizens (rich or poor, high or low, official or non-official) to the ordinary law of the land administered by the ordinary law courts The primacy of the rights of the individual, that is, the constitution is the result of the rights of the individual as defined and enforced by courts of law, rather than constitution being the source of the individual rights Rule of Law and Indian Constitution In India the Constitution is supreme.
