Oxford University Press

Badrinath informs the reader that English law took two great steps towards protecting the individual from the unlawful use, both of legislative and governmental power. The first in the Anisminic case in 1969, and the second in the Tameside case in 1977. He says further that the Supreme Court of India, as constituted at present, has, by its recent several judgements and directions to governmental and civic agencies, deepened the foundations of the rule of law in a way that was never before done in India or elsewhere. The judges have achieved this by extending the power of mandamus over areas which hitherto were beyond judicial control.
