Report No. 186
Power to mould appropriate relief
Normally, Civil Courts do not grant relief which is not prayed for. But, like Writ Courts, these environment Courts must be able to mould any relief appropriate to the facts and circumstances of the case.
Therefore, we are of the view that, in the original petitions or in appeals, the proposed Courts should have power to grant any other relief other than what is sought for, which is suitable in facts and circumstances of the case.
