Socio-legal research has two primary approaches. It focuses on social problem-social engineering and social context in laying out the relationships between norms, sanctions, and regulations. Within the realm of Sociology of Law, the article restricts the discussion only to sociological criminology, crime as a social phenomenon. The focus is to explore the interplay between criminal law, criminally defined behaviour and social and control reaction. In spite of the studies by various committees, white collar crimes (especially in the fiscal field) are seen to be tolerated in non-socialist countries including India. However, in India, some studies on white collar crimes and other forms of privileged class deviance have been made with reference to actual crimes and their impact on socio-economic development in India.
