  • In the intro, mention the issue of pendency of mercy petitions with the President and delay in carrying out the death sentences.
  • In the body, mention the reasons for the delay in carrying out the death penalty in India. In the next part, give reasons for abolition like the rising proportion of countries abolishing the practice, humanitarian issue, violation of human rights due to delay in India etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to do away with capital punishment in the modern world.
