The objective of the present paper is to expose the biased judiciary system during the British Raj in India in A Passage to India (1924) by E.M. Forster. The novel ostensibly shows that the British government had done everything to satisfy its own vested interest so as to raise the economic and social condition of England on the cost of India. The present paper is limited to just one aspect of British Raj named biased judiciary system. The novel presents how the judiciary system is used to dominate and control the native system of justice system of India. Getting the right on the time in British judiciary is far from the reach of common Indian. The British judges use all the means whether they are right or wrong to subjugate the common masses.
