We first reference the Shreya Singhal ruling and explain these instances of judicial review from an institutional perspective, premised on notions of dialogue between different branches of State. Proceeding with the argument specific to Section 66-A, we analyse three distinct data sets (online legal databases, the National Crime Records Bureau, and Press Reports) to weave the central thread of our paper of its continued application. We argue that the continued use is a product of communication failures between the branches of State and offer some solutions in conclusion.
