The Plea of Limitation II: Article 192 of The Constitution

Unfortunately, there is no period of limitation prescribed by law within which a person aggrieved by the decision of the Governor under Article 192 can approach the High Court. Until such law is made, we deem it appropriate to hold that any person aggrieved by a decision of the Governor under Article 192 must approach the High Court by initiating appropriate proceedings, (if he is so desirous) within a period of eight weeks from the date of the decision of the Governor. Such proceedings must be heard by a Bench of at least two Judges and be disposed of within a period of eight weeks from the date of initiation without fail. 

– Hon’ble Justice J. ChelameswarECI v. Bajrang Bahadur, [Special Leave Petition (Civil) No. 8850 of 2015].
