Consider the following statements:
1. A High Court can issue a writ to another High Court

Which among the above statements is / are correct?

Answer: [D] Neither 1 nor 2

A High Court can issue a writ against itself in its administrative capacity but not against itself in judicial capacity. This implies that a High Court can issue certiorari to a tribunal situated within its jurisdiction. A High Court cannot issue a writ to another High Court.  A bench of a High Court cannot issue  a writ to another bench of the same High Court.
