Difference between Petition

Original petition generally refers to any petition or any application in court that states the origination of disputes and seeks specific reliefs. Rule 3(9) of the Code of Civil Procedure defines Original Petition as: ‘Original petition means a petition whereby any proceeding other than a suit or appeal or a proceedings in execution of a decree or order, is instituted in a court.” The Original Petition refers to the point of origination of the dispute. On the other hand Interlocutory Petition is defined under the Civil Rules of Practice, Rule 2 (j) to mean “an application to the court in any suit, appeal or proceedings already instituted in such court, other than a proceeding for execution of a decree or order”. It is interesting to note that the word “application” is defined in Rule 2 (c) that includes execution application, execution petition and interlocutory application, both written and oral.

Model Prison Manual

Prison is a place where the criminal justice system put its entire hopes. The correctional mechanism, if fails will make the whole criminal procedure in vain. The doctrine behind punishment for a crime has been changed a lot by the evolution of new human rights jurisprudence. The concept of reformation has become the watchword for prison administration. Human rights jurisprudence advocates that no crime should be punished in a cruel, degrading or in an inhuman manner. On the contrary, it is held that any punishment that amounts to cruel, degrading or inhuman should be treated as an offence by itself.

However, prisoner’s liberty is in the very nature of things circumscribed by the very fact of his confinement. His interest in the limited liberty left to him is then all the more substantial conviction for a crime does not reduce the person into a non-person whose rights are subject to the whims of the prison administration and therefore, the imposition of any major punishment within the prison system is condition upon the observance of procedural safeguards (Sunil Batra versus Delhi Administration, AIR 1978 SC 1675). In the said decision, Justice D.A.Desai, speaking for himself, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of India and two Hon’ble Judges observed that a convict is in prison under the order and direction of the Court and the Court has, therefore, to strike a just balance between the dehumanizing prison atmosphere and the preservation of interval order and discipline, the maintenance of institutional security against escape, and rehabilitation of the prisoners
