The object underlying the rules of natural justice ‘is to prevent miscarriage of justice’ and secure ‘fair play inaction’. As pointed out earlier the requirement about recording of reasons for its decision by an administrative authority exercising quasi-judicial functions achieves this object by excusing chances of arbitrariness and ensuring a degree of fairness in the process of decision making. Keeping in view the expanding horizon of the principle of natural justice, we are of the opinion that the requirement to record reason can be regarded as one of the principle of natural justice which governs exercise of power by administrative authorities. The rules of natural justice are not embodied rules.
The extent of their application depends upon the particular statutory framework where jurisdiction has been conferred on the administrative authority. With regard to the exercise of a particular by an administrative authority including exercise of judicial or quasi-judicial functions the legislature, while conferring the said power, may feel that it would not be in the larger public interest that the reasons for the order passed by the administrative authority be recorded in the order and be communicated to the aggrieved party and it may dispense with such a requirement.

(A) Administrative authority framing rules suitably
(B) Administrative authority remaining vigilant
