Mandamus literally means ‘we command’. It is a command issued by the court to a public official asking him/her to perform his/her official duties that he/she has failed or refused to perform. In other words, this writ is issued when the court finds that a particular office holder is not doing his/her legal duty and thereby is infringing on the right of an individual.
