Law of India

  • A person who has been prejudicially affected by an act or omission of an authority can tile a writ even though he has no proprietary or even fiduciary interest in the subject matter thereof.
  • Article 226 of the Constitution of India can be enforced only by an aggrieved person except in the case where the writ prayed for is for habeas corpus or quo warranto.
  •  If a person approaching the Court can satisfy that the impugned action is likely to adversely affect his right which is shown to be having source in some statutory provision, the petition tiled by such a person cannot be rejected on the ground of his not having the locus standi.
  • It is not the requirement of law in India that both the attesting witnesses should also sign in the presence of each other.
  • Municipal Law of India confers jurisdiction upon the local Courts over non-resident foreigners.
  • Offence committed by a person, which is punishable under the law in India, he can be prosecuted for the offence committed abroad.
  • Promissory estoppel is an expanding doctrine. The development of this branch of law in India is sui generis.
