Types of Writ Petition in India- Download Drafts

Our constitution grants us various types of rights such as the right to education, the right to freedom, etc. Writs are issued to safeguard our fundamental as well as other legal rights.

Writs are orders or directions or commands that are issued by the High Court and Supreme Court as a constitutional remedy to enforce these rights.

The Supreme Court has been conferred with powers under Article 32 of the constitution to issue various writs. The High Court can issue writs under Article 226 of the constitution.

The high court has been conferred wider powers than the supreme court under article 226 to issue writs.

The supreme court issues writs only in those matters which violate fundamental rights whereas the high court issues writs in matters which violate other rights as well as fundamental rights.

There are 5 types of Writ Petitions in India:-

1)Writ of Habeas Corpus

This is a powerful and most often used writ. It is a Latin word that means to produce the body. This writ can be used against illegal detention or wrongful detention.

It might happen that a police officer or government official can detain a person due to their personal vendetta against him.

In many countries, citizens were incarcerated for months and years without even actually being charged for an offense. In order to safeguard the rights of citizens and prevent such power abuse by the authorities, the writ of Habeas Corpus was included in the Constitution.

Whenever such writ is issued,the SC or HC interrogates the detaining authority and if the basis of the detention is found to be unconstitutional or unjustifiable then the detention comes to end and the person is to be released immediately.

A writ of Habeas Corpus can be filed by the person who is incarcerated through his wife,her husband, family members, or friends or even next friend.

Significantly in view of Article 359 of the Constitution the writ of Habeas Corpus can be filed during a state of emergency to enforce fundamental right under Article 20 and 21.

2) Writ of Certiorari-

The meaning of this writ is to be fully informed. This Writ is of corrective nature and is used as a remedy to correct errors that are apparent on the records.

This writ is issued after a judgment or order is announced as it is used to quash an order made by an inferior court or an authority inclusive administrative authority.

Conditions when the writ of certiorari can be issued:-

1)When an inferior court or authority acts beyond its jurisdiction and abuses the jurisdiction provided to it or when there is an absence of jurisdiction of the inferior court.

2)This Writ can also be issued when there is a fundamental error in the procedure followed by the inferior court or if there is a violation of the principles of natural justice.

3)This Writ can be issued when the error is based on a clear disregard to the provisions of law.

When all these conditions are fulfilled, only then a Writ of Certiorari can be issued. The Writ of Certiorari lies against judicial or quasi-judicial bodies.

3)Writ of Mandamus-

It means to Command. The writ of mandamus can be issued in favor of a person who establishes a legal right for himself. It can be issued against a person or aurhority who has a legal duty to perform but has failed to do so.

The writ of mandamus can be issued against the subordinate. Courts, Tribunal, Aboard, Administrative Authority, Corporation or a person requiring the performance of a specific duty fixed by law or associated with the office occupied by the person.

The writ cannot be filed to remove personal vendetta against others; it should be done in Good faith and should be justifiable.

Conditions when the writ of mandamus can be issued are-

1)There should be a legal right and duty. The duty should not be discretionary or optional

2)There should be a demand for such legal rights and they should be refused by the authorities or no action on such demand for a reasonable period.

3)Where no other alternative remedies are available then the mandamus comes into force 

In the case of Punjab Engineering College v.Sanjay Gulatie the court ordered the college to admit students. The students were not admitted despite fulfilling the necessary conditions.

The Supreme court or high court by this writ can compel an authority to perform their duties and exercise certain powers. 

4)It may prevent authorities from doing certain Acts 

This writ is neither curative nor a preventive remedy; it’s a positive remedy. It is necessary to file a writ of mandamus within the reasonable time period without delay or laches.

4)Writ of Prohibition

The Writ of prohibition means to forbid or to stop.It is popularly known as stay order.It is used as a preventive remedy.

This Writ is used seldom and is a extraordinary remedy which superior court issues.Whenever a lower court tries to act beyond its power this writ of Prohibition is issued by a superior court to the lower tribunal or inferior court forbidding it to perform or act outside its jurisdiction.

It is issued before the lower court announces its final judgement.If the court or tribunals which does not have jurisdiction to decide the case, it will be an invalid judgement because for an act to be legal it should be sanctioned by law.

Eg if the District Court hears appeal against the judgement of the Supreme Court, such an act is bound its Jurisdiction to be prohibited because the District Court does not have the power sanctioned by law to hear such an appeal.In such a case a Writ of Prohibition will be issued.

Conditions when a  Writ of Prohibition can be issued-

1)The inferior court exceeds its jurisdiction 

2)The court or tribunal acts against the provisions of law

3)When the court is partly acting within its jurisdiction and partly outside,the writ will be issued for acts that are partly outside their jurisdiction.

This Writ can be issued only when the proceedings are pending in the inferior court and not when an order has already been passed by that court.

Thus, this Writ is a preemptive remedy which is exercised by the superior court to prevent the inferior court from acting outside its jurisdiction.

The Writ of Prohibition can be issued only against a judicial or a quasi-judicial body and it cannot be issued against any administrative body.

5)Writ of Quo Warranto

The Writ of Quo Warranto is issued by the courts against a private individual when he assumes a public office on which he has no right.

Quo Warranto literally means ‘by what authority’ and it is an effective measure to prevent people from taking over public offices.

The power conferred on courts to issue Writ of Quo Warranto is discretionary therefore courts are not bound or obligated to issue this writ everytime.

Conditions when Quo Warranto can be issued-

1)If a public office is wrongfully taken over by a private person.The person against whom the Writ is to be issued should have  actual possession of the office and should be using such office.

2)The office  taken over was created by the Constitution or some other statute

3)Duties arising from these offices are public.

4)The term of the office should be permanent in nature and non-terminable at any persons or authorities pleasure.

5)This Writ can also be issued in those cases where a person was entitled to hold the office earlier but after getting disqualified he is still in possession of the office.

6) This Writ cannot be issued by the Court if the office is of private nature.The Writ of Quo Warranto cannot be issued against a person who is not holding a public office.
