Description
Over the years India has emerged as a frontal democratic welfare State committed to the achievement of the rule of law and all-round socio-economic uplift of the people. With that object in view, the Central and the State Governments have formulated numerous policies and programmes, created authorities and enacted laws which have sometimes impinged on the rights and expectations of the people. In their anxiety to achieve expeditiously the goals and targets of performance, Government officials and public representatives often traverse beyond the limits of their statutory power or deviate from the prescribed procedure in their actions or decisions with the consequence of those being declared ultra vires by the courts. Similarly, the legislature too enacts laws which may incur the stigma of ultra vires.
