Anun Dhawan vs Union Of India 2024 INSC 136 :: [2024] 2 S.C.R. 812 – Judicial Review Of Policy Matters – Community Kitchen

Judicial Review – The scope of judicial review in examining the policy matters is very limited. The Courts do not and cannot examine the correctness, suitability or appropriateness of a policy, nor are the courts advisors to the executive on the matters of policy which the executive is entitled to formulate. The Courts cannot direct the States to implement a particular policy or scheme on the ground that a better, fairer or wiser alternative is available. Legality of the policy, and not the wisdom or soundness of the policy, would be the subject of judicial review [Court refused to direct the States/UTs to implement the concept of Community Kitchens]
