Mandamus is basically a writ that is given by the Supreme Court for any public official body or even the lower court to carry out some kind of specified duty. It is derived from the Latin word mand mus, which means to 'we order' or "we command". These orders are to perform only ministerial duties correctly and rightly.

Mandamus is supplemented by officially permitted rights. This kind of legal discretion is done when the array is made with no, or in overload of authority, the order made is mala fide, or the power is prejudiced by irrelevant consideration.
