In the ordinary lives that most citizens lead, torts as ‘civil wrongs’ play an important role in addressing some of the grievances suffered by these citizens. Since this branch of law deals with a breach of duty towards the public and people, at large, its framework and implementation becomes increasingly significant. In India, the origin from the common law structure, has resulted in the law of torts having an uncodified format, which has obvious repercussions on the exercise of tort laws. An evaluation of the existing, non-codified nature of the law of torts, reveals numerous effects of the absence of a codified structure on its practical application. Against the rapidly developing legal landscape of India, there is an impending need to codify this branch of law by weighing the impact of this change on the effectiveness of the law of torts.
