TAN TEK SENG v. SURUHANJAYA PERKHIDMATAN PENDIDIKAN & ANOR

In Ranjit Thakur v. Union of India AIR [1987] SC 2386, 2393, Venkatachalaiah J., when dealing with the appropriateness of the punishment handed down by a Court Martial, said:
Judicial review generally speaking, is not directed against a decision, but is directed against the 'decision making process.' The question of the choice and quantum of punishment is within the jurisdiction and discretion of the Court- Martial. But the sentence has to suit the offence and the offender.
