This book deals with two systems of justice viz., custom based justice and modern legal justice based on the rule of law, operating side by side, which create mess/hutch-putch. The custom based justice is uncodified. The modern legal as per the justice rules of 1937 framed by the colonial rulers. Crime had previously been almost absent in the Mizo Society, Presently, crimes of different nature, (criminal and civil) are increasing owing to the enlarging money economy, the loosening of social bonds, the emergence of classes of the neo-middle rich and the poor and the concentration of wealth at the top and poverty at the bottom of the social hierarchy. The book emphasizes more thrust on legislation and trail of cases by the State Courts rather than the District Councils’ Courts, trying cases by uncodified, customary laws and also suggests to streamline the existing judical administration in order to have an uniform and impartial justice.
