The theory was put forward by a French thinker Charles de Secondat Montesquieu during the enlightenment age. The theory originally known as
'Trias politica' in French states the different powers and responsibilities related to governance—namely the legislative, executive and the judicial—should be independent of each other. He developed this theory after observing life in France, where he saw three stratas of society: the commons, the aristocrats and the monarchy. There were the three powers but no distribution of them. Most modern democracies as diverse as the United States and India have separation of powers as a part of their constitutions. It prevents the abuse of power as each branch is independent and keeps a check on the other two.

Separation of Powers mean division of governmental authority. The division of power is among the three branches of government. These branches are executive, legislative, and judicial. The role of these branches is to limit abuses of power by Governments.

The United States Government is designed so that no one branch has complete authority. Hence, the term checks and balances. No one department in the government has complete control.
