Supreme Court refuses to entertain plea seeking ‘one person one car’ policy

A bench of Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud and Justice PS Narasimha said that the prayers raised in the petition fell squarely within the domain of executive.

The issues which are raised in the petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India in the present case pertain to the policy domain. Hence, we are not inclined to entertain the petition. The petitioners are at at liberty to pursue their grievances before the authorities in accordance with law,” the Court ordered.

The petitioner, an NGO by the name Tsunami on Roads, told the Court that around 1.5 crore cars were sold in the country in 2022.

The Court said it was not casting doubt on the bonafides of the petitioner.

It explained that the issue was a matter of policy within a domain of the government and that the Court could not intervene.

“We are not doubting your bonafide. But these are matters of policy. We cannot intervene in every areas of governance, issues of policy,” the Court said.
