Filling of vacancies

49.—(1) Whenever the seat of a Member, not being a non-constituency Member, has become vacant for any reason other than a dissolution of Parliament, the vacancy SHALL BE FILLED BY ELECTION in the manner provided by or under any law relating to Parliamentary elections for the time being in force.

I think the loop hole is PM can decide on the timing so he can take his own sweet time and fill ithe in the next elections
I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I will do my utmost to keep them alive.
Against tyrants and adversity, I will strive.
Together, a better future, we will realise......

While a previous clause saying that an election shall be called in three months had been deleted in 1965, the Appeals Court said: "The absence of the time-limit clause cannot lead to the conclusion that the Prime Minister is completely free to do as he pleases, even to the extent of delaying indefinitely the calling of a by-election or even declaring that he will not fill the casual vacancy."

On the other hand, the court agreed with the AGC that there is "no pre-determined time frame" for the PM to call a by-election but noted that a vacancy left unfilled for "an unnecessarily prolonged period" raises the serious risk of disenfranchising constituents. "He (the PM) must do so within a reasonable time and in that regard, the Prime Minister is entitled to take into account all relevant circumstances and only in clear cases can there be judicial intervention," said the court

The court of Appeal says that when there is clear case eg if it can be proven that PM takes own sweet time to call a by election to fill the vacancy or declare that he will not fill the vacancy by byelection before the next election, there can be judicial intervention from the court.
