Merely Because ECI Office Is In Delhi, Delhi High Court Will Not Have Jurisdiction : Election Commission

Case Title: Dr. Vikram Singh v. Union of India & Anr.

The Delhi High Court has granted time to the Election Commission of India to file its reply in a petition seeking action against such candidates who violated the masking policy during election campaigns amid Covid-19.

The Commission has claimed that the High Court does not have territorial jurisdiction to adjudicate on the plea and in any case, the matter has become infructuous as campaigns are already over.

He further stated that the plea seeks directions upon District Disaster Management Authorities situated outside Delhi and for this reason also, the petition is liable to be dismissed as non-maintainable.
