Abstract: The fundamental structure of the current formal judicial system of Pakistan has been taken from the medieval period and even before. Panchayat system has been basic and critical informal judicial system for the villages of Pakistan for justice provision as the decentralized power, and local governance and it has never been completely adopted by national or provincial governments. This research aimed at “A Comparative Study of Punchayat System and State’s Judicial System in Punjab, Pakistan”. The universe of the research is whole Punjab, Pakistan. The study was confined to three representative districts of Punjab, randomly selected. The judicial system generally maintained a steady growth and gradual advance towards consolidation and improvement/refinement, without indeed, having to undergo any major disruption or breakdown. Panchayat system has been fundamental and crucial for the villages of sub-continent and also in Pakistan for justice provision as the decentralized power, and participatory governance and it has never been completely inherited by our government. This research aimed at “A comparative study of punchayat system and state’s judicial system in Punjab, Pakistan”. Therefore, the universe of the research was whole Punjab, Pakistan. The study was confined to three districts of Punjab. The study was done by using mainly quantitative methods which were necessary to explore the subject and issues about the research. Interview schedule was used for the collection of quantitative data. The choice of method depends upon the purpose of the study, the resources available and skills of the researcher (Kumar, 1999). There is no doubt that Pakistan's judicial system still has so many problems, however the current reforms has made it relatively more efficient. Instant access to justice is not yet available to people living in remote areas. To approach the police is not a common man’s job. The courts are overloaded with plenty of cases. Then people are bound to access traditional forums of justice like Punchayat. Both descriptive and inferential techniques were used for analysis of data. At the end some conclusions have been drawn and suggestions are recommended.
