Battle of the Articles I: 32/226

No question other than relating to Fundamental Rights will be determined in a proceeding under Article 32 of the Constitution. The difference between Article 32 and 226 of the Constitution is that while an Application Under Article 32 lies only for the enforcement of Fundamental Rights, the High Court Under Article 226 has a wider power to exercise its jurisdiction not only for the enforcement of Fundamental Rights but also Ordinary Legal Rights.”

Justice M.Y. Eqbal, DM Wayanad Institute of Medical Sciences v. Union of India, [Writ Petition No. 441 of 2015].
