Abstract
On the recommendation of Malimath Committee, “Plea Bargaining” was introduced in the “Indian Criminal
Justice System” by the “Criminal Laws (Amendment) Act, 2005” to reduce the burden of the courts i.e. to clear the backlog

prosecution for a lesser punishment or lesser charge. Plea Bargaining is not an indigenous concept of Indian legal system, it

“applicability of plea bargaining in India”, and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of plea bargaining, and it also
tries to explore the judicial attitude and approach towards this concept

Key words: Plea Bargaining, Speedy Disposal, Reduce Litigation, Burden of Courts.
