The paper attempted to explain how the highest offices of judiciary in India over the past 60 years have changed their interpretation of a single statute and single provision related to impugned dismissal of worker by his employer. The paper explains that the interpretation of the statute has changed after economic liberalisation of the 90s primarily because the state wanted to bring back the economy by adopting free market economy, that warrants labour market flexibility among others.
