Constitutional issue

Whether a Draft Bill can be challenged before HC/SC on grounds of it being ultra vires the Constitution and hence void?


You cannot operate on the body of an unborn child. Consitutionality of a law can be challenged, but not proposal that is yet to mature.




Agree with Mr Jigyadu in spirit. Well now a days you can do some evasive treatment on the body of an unborn child. Many a times the opinion of the public is taken up (on certain specific issues) while drafting a bill. If this option is available then you can raise your objection. Otherwise if the bill is expected to impact public at large, then you can approach your area MP and ask him to take up this issue during discussion. But you cannot approach court as yet.

So there's no way a draft bill can be challenged?

No way, as Mr. Jigyasu has rightly pointed out. You may approach through Law Commission or represent your objection through the MP of your constituency.



Constitution of the country changes according to the time and lots of people make the constitutions of the country. This is the unique information about the Constitution. You should give with more information or stages of the constitutions and it is good.
