This Paper examines corporal punishment in the current education system. During the Gurukul system of Education, the disciples were punished for their indiscipline and misbehavior. But the punishment was only confined to do some physical work and had no adverse effect on the physical and mental abilities of the child. In modern time period universalization of elementary education is the prime motive of our govt. But unfortunately this type of formal education makes the child more and unhappy. The reason behind this unhappiness is existence of corporal punishment in formal system of education. The purpose of the present study was to judge the attitude of parents, teachers and students towards corporal punishment. For this purpose the investigator prepared self-made questionnaire. The finding shows that inflicting physical punishment creates pain, fear and feelings of humiliation and does not remove the cause of misbehavior. So the main thing is that discipline as a mean of punishment should be avoided and we should aim at making the child self-disciplined. Children should know how to discipline themselves and then grow up to become adults who are responsible i.e. able to carry on the important responsibilities of life.
