What is the scope of remedies in a Writ Petition under Article 226?
Art. 226 of the Constitutional of India, 1950 reads: 226. Power of High Courts to issue certain writs (1) Notwithstanding anything in Article 32 every High Court shall have powers, throughout the territories in relation to which it exercise jurisdiction, to issue to any person or authority, including in appropriate cases, any Government, within those territories directions, orders or writs, including writs in the nature of habeas corpus, mandamus, prohibitions, quo warranto and certiorari, or any of them, for the enforcement of any of the rights conferred by Part III and for any other purpose. Therefore, the High Court can not only issue writs in the nature of the prerogative writs mentioned above for the enforcement of fundamental rights, but can also issue writs for any other purpose. Art. 226 enables the High Court to mould reliefs to meet the peculiar and complicated requirements of every case.
