Report No. 88
In a Punjab case, Khosla, J. attempted to evolve a definition of the expression "affairs of State",1 and this definition was relied on in the same High Court in a later case.2 However, in appeal before the Supreme Court in the later case,3 the definition was not treated as exhaustive. Thus, the expression "affairs of State" is in practice, found to be somewhat imprecise.
