Can Governor's report recommending President's rule in the state be questioned in Supreme Court ?

Can Governor's report recommending President's rule in the state be questioned in Supreme Court for Malafide ?
Isn't his acts/reports out of Judicial scrutiny ?

  • judicial review is part of basic structure of constitution, so everything can be questioned
  • @upsc_cracker Governor is not answerable regarding his adminstrative decision to any court since he has got constitutional immunity(Dont remember the article). Although his grounds of emergency in report may be probed into on ground of malafide intentions.

    Governor's report can very well be questioned , the report is the material used in giving advice to the President , although as per Article 74(2) the advice tendered cannot be questioned. Governor's report becomes the material to tender the advice , and is not the advice in itself
    However, the Government can claim privilege under the Section 123 of the Evidence Act 1872
  • S R Bommai's case held validity of proclamation under article 356 can be judicially reviewed (DD Basu)
