Writ of Prohibition cs professional drafting short notes
Writ of „Prohibition?.
Ans.) The writ of prohibition is issued by a superior court directing an inferior court forbidding it to continue proceeding:
a) With jurisdiction but in excess of its jurisdiction; or b) With exercise of jurisdiction when it does not have; or c) With contravention of some law.
Thus, it is a judicial writ. However, it can also be issued to the quasi-judicial bodies. The effect of a writ of prohibition is that it orders the immediate stoppage of the trail of the case in the lower Court.
