"Judicial and quasi-judicial Tribunals do not possess any wider or more extensive inherent power than Courts."
The observations in these decisions though relate (sic) Courts, may on general principles equally apply to judicial and quasi-judicial tribunals. These decisions illustrate the narrow and restricted limits within which the inherent power of relieving suitors from the mistakes of Courts may legitimately be invoked for promoting the cause of justice which, according to our system, is administered according to law; they clearly do not lend any support to the broad and unqualified proposition that Courts are empowered to recall or review their earlier erroneous and unjust orders whenever it is discovered that the error was due to their own mistaken view on the merits of the controversy, and the observations in Mrs. Peterson's case AIR 1963 SC 692, clearly seem to negative it. I may observe that it is not claimed that judicial and quasi-judicial tribunals possess, in this respect, any wider or more extensive inherent power than the Courts.
