Time limit for writ petition

Is there a specific time limit for filing a writ petition? The order I want to appeal under article 227 was made on 20/9/2011. Is it ok if I file the WP in Jan 2012?

There is no time limitation for filing the writ, but huge delay will cause the writ to be dissmissed on the count of DELAY AND LACHES. Normally there is 90 days limitation in limitaion act for the provisions of CPC hence the filing of writ within 90 to 150 or 200 days is not considered time barred.

 there is no prescribed limitation period for filing a writ petition. but, as this is a discretionary relief, the courts would always expect the aggrieved party to move the court without unnecessary delay... moreover the hon'ble courts had clearly stated it won't come to the  rescue of those who sleep over their rights.

but, if you succeed in covincing the court about the genuinity behind such delay, then i dnt think you'l have any problem in proceeding with youR WP

after filing writ petition how much time it takes to resolve the case? 

i have changed my gender after the NALSA judgemnt came into effect. i got new voter id, pan card, aadhaar card and submitted the same in my office (State Bank of  India) but the dumb law officer there is not accepting any of this. he is asking for recognition of my gender from state govt. i also have state govt gezette notification about the change of gender which is not sufficient for him.

if i file a writ petition against bank how much time it may take to resolve?
