Public Interest Litigation


Against Whom a Public Interest Litigation Can be Filed?

  • A PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION can be filed only against a State / Central Govt., Municipal Authorities, and not any private party.

  • However "Private party" can be included in the PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION as "Respondent", after making concerned state authority, a party.

    For example - If there is a Private factory in Delhi, which is causing pollution, then people living nearly, or any other person can file a PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION against:

Government of Delhi
State Pollution Control Board, and
Also against the private factory

  • However, a PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION can not be filed against the Private party alone concerned state Govt. /, and state authority has to be made a party.
