Analysis of Supreme Court Judgment in Anjum Hussain & Ors. vs. Intellicity Business Park Pvt. Ltd. & Ors.

For Class Action Suit, oneness of the interest is akin to a common grievance against the same person.

It was observed by this Court in T.N. Housing Board that the provision must receive an interpretation which would subserve the object for its enactment. It is in this light that the Full Bench of the National Commission held that oneness of the interest is akin to a common grievance against the same person. However, the National Commission in the instant case, completely lost sight of the principles so clearly laid down in the decisions referred to above. In our view, the approach in the instant case was totally erroneous.
