Writ Petition Is Not A Proper Remedy If There Are Seriously Disputed Questions Of Facts: Andhra Pradesh High Court
[25 March 2022] In a recent case, a writ petition was filed questioning the inaction of the respondents in not paying the compensation for the acquisition of land. The respondent submitted that the issues urged by the petitioners were matters of evidence. There were seriously disputed questions of fact which could not be decided in a writ petition.
The court agreed with the observation that there were very seriously disputed questions of facts which required evidence to be adduced. Writ Petition is not the proper remedy. These disputed facts cannot be decided in proceedings under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
The writ petition was therefore dismissed.
