B) Disputes between the States inter se
C) Protection of the Fundamental Rights
D) Protection against the violation of the Constitution
Correct Answer: C
Solution :[c] According to article 32 of the constitution, the Supreme Court shall have power to issue directions or orders or writs, including writs in the nature of habeas corpus, mandamus, prohibition, quo warranto and certiorari, whichever may be appropriate, for the enforcement of any of the rights conferred by this Part-III. And according to article 226, notwithstanding anything in Article 32 every High Court shall have powers, throughout the territories in relation to which it exercise jurisdiction, to issue to any person or authority, including in appropriate cases, any Government, within those territories directions, orders or writs, including writs in the nature of habeas corpus, mandamus, prohibitions, quo warranto and certiorari, or any of them, for the enforcement of any of the rights conferred by Part III and for any other purpose. In short, Article 32 empowers the Supreme Court to issue the writs only when the Fundamental Rights are violated or threatened whereas article 226 empowers the High Courts can issue writs for any purpose.
