An Injunction is a judicial process whereby a party is ordered to refrain from doing or to do a particular act.  Injunction is defined by Barney's Encyclopedia of the Law of England as "a judicial process by which one, who has invaded or is threatening to invade the rights (legal or equitable) of another , is restrained from continuing or commencing such wrongful act.

Kinds of Injunctions 

There are two kinds of Injunction are as follows -

(1) Temporary Injunctions

(2) Perpetual Injunctions

(1) Temporary Injunctions : 

             Temporary injunction is such as are to continue until a specific time, or until the further order of Civil Procedure, may be granted at any stage of a suit, and are regulated by the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908.

 (2) Perpetual Injunctions        

              A perpetual injunction can only be granted by the decree made at the hearing and upon the merits of the suit; the defendant is thereby perpetually enjoined from the assertion of a Tight, or from the commission of an act, which would be contrary to the rights of the plaintiff.

             A person who fails to abide by the terms of an injunction may be guilty of contempt of court.
