Public Interest Litigation

Public Interest Litigation

As per the Indian law, Public Interest Litigation, mostly called as PIL, is the litigation that is filed in order to protect the interests of public. And public interests can be ranging from environment and pollution to road safety and constructional hazards etc.

It is the power handed by the court in the hands of public through judicial activism. In the case of PIL, it is not necessary that the victim needs to file the case or approach the court by themselves.

The main motto of public interest litigation is to look if the public interest is getting affected at large due to an incident or not. Following points are mostly considered in case of PIL consideration-

  • Violation of human rights
  • Misconduct of government policy 
  • Hurting of religious beliefs and rights 
  • Matters affecting the society as a whole
