What is doctrine of judicial review?

 In short, Judicial review is directed not against the decision, but is confined to the examination of the decision making process. When the issue raised in judicial review is whether a decision is vitiated by taking into account irrelevant, or neglecting to take into account of relevant factors or is so manifestly unreasonable that no reasonable authority entrusted with the power in question could reasonably have made such decision. The judicial services of the decision making process includes examination, as a matter of law, of the relevance of the factors as held by the Supreme Court in the case of State of U.P. v. Maharani Rajlaxmi Kumari Devi A.I.R. 1989 S.C. 1010.
