Background/Objectives: Estoppels is a rule of evidence which prevents a party from denying the fact which he has already been asserted. The doctrine of legitimate expectation is closely related to the principle of estoppel as both the doctrines are based upon a clear and unambiguous promise. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The methodology which is going to be adopted for the present research work will mainly be based on doctrinal analysis, i.e., the theoretical sources. The theoretical work will relate to the administrative action of the public body; their policies; Constitutional, Legislative, Executive and judicial control of administrative action through the doctrine of legitimate expectation. It is proposed to collect material from the various discipline of Administrative and Constitutional law. It is also pertinent to mention that research will heavily rely on different journals, reviews, and national & international judicial pronouncements. Findings: Legitimate expectation has an important place in the realm of administrative law. It is an integral component of the principle of the rule of law that power should not be exercised arbitrarily. One of the safeguards is provided through judicial interpretation in a long list of cases that this administration discretion is subject to legitimate expectation vested in the people. It cannot be expected that there can be judicial intervention in the policy framing by the executive as it is an essential function belonging to the executive.
