The author has made an earnest attempt to analyse the broad concept of Writ jurisdiction as envisaged under Articles 32 and 226 of the Constitution of India. In this book, the author has laid greater stress on the examination of the efficacy of Writ jurisdiction being exercised by the High Courts under Article 226 of the Constitution. The author has also made an effort to identify and highlight the major trends appearing in the exercise of Writ jurisdiction at the level of the High Court and various factors affecting the efficacy of Writ jurisdiction with relevant case laws. Though the author has come to these broad conclusions on the basis of about one thousand judgments delivered by Punjab and Haryana High Court, yet these can be taken as a general trend.
