@K.Mahesh: The Curative Petition option was laid down by a 5-Judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court in the case of Rupa Ashok Hurra v. Ashok Hurra, (2002) 4 SCC 388 : AIR 2002 SC 1771. Detailed procedure for filing of curative petition was laid down in this case, inter alia, including that the curative petition shall contain a certification by a Senior Advocate with regard to the fulfilment of the requirements for filing the curative petition. It was held that except when very strong reasons exist, the Supreme Court should not entertain an application (i.e., curative petition) seeking reconsideration of an order of the Court which has become final on dismissal of a review petition. The Supreme Court held that it is neither advisable nor possible to enumerate all the grounds on which such a curative petition may be entertained. Nevertheless, a petitioner is entitled to relief if he establishes (1) violation of principles of natural justice in that he was not a party to the lis but the judgment adversely affected his interests or, if he was a party to the lis, he was not served with notice of the proceedings and the matter proceeded as if he had notice and (2) where in the proceedings a learned Judge failed to disclose his connection with the subject-matter or the parties giving scope for an apprehension of bias and the judgment adversely affects the petitioner.
