writ petition


Hello,

Writ Petition under Article 226 of Constitution of India has been filed at Bombay HC against my friend, an individual, in relation to certain property dispute. The opposite side lawyer has done service at the old address of the said individual. The said individual has shifted to another city over 6 months back.

 

In the above situation, does the said individual need to defend the writ petition? The aforementioned service was accepted by neighbour of the said individual.

Appreciate your early replies.

Accepting the notice by his neighbour doesn't give assent that he had accepted the same. So, it's better to resend the fresh notice to his current address.

Dear Friend

First of all, how is Writ against individual on property matter maintainable. That too Writ under Article 226. 

Anyways, I will advice you not to avoid service for too long. The court may proceed with the matter ex-parte. I guess you would like court to pass order after hearing you and not in your absence. Take a decision accordingly. 

Regards

I don't think the Writ is maintainable at all in the first places, Writs  can't be filed against private individuals.They can be filed against  public authorities only as per the Constitution of India.
