Rule of Law Index



    • After the World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business’ rankings, the government has turned its attention to scoring better in the Rule of Law Index (ROLI).
      • India has been ranked 77th out of 140 countries in 2022 by the World Justice Project (WJP)


    • The Rule of Law Index (ROLI) is released by the World Justice Project (WJP), a US-based civil society group.
    • It rates countries based on accountability of executives and respect for fundamental rights of people.
    • The index is prepared by examining these four principles through eight factors: constraints on government powers, absence of corruption, open government, fundamental rights, order and security, regulatory enforcement, civil justice, and criminal justice.
