Writ Jurisdiction: Scope And Limitations Faced By The Courts

Gopika Thakur, Bennett University, Greater Noida


The paper majorly focuses on the Writ jurisdiction under Article 32 and Article 226 of the Indian constitution. The paper initially talks about the types of reliefs available and the functions of these articles and then progresses on to discuss the limitations of these articles on the judicial courts of law. The scope of the research paper limits to the powers of the Supreme Court and the High court to exercise these powers granted to them by the Constitution to protect the rights of the citizens from its infringement. The paper will also aim to discuss the interrelation between the two articles and what makes them distinct from each other. We shall also look into the various challenges faced by the courts when huge number of these petitions are filed before them and how they take cognizance of the matter and dispose them in the appropriate manner.
