Public Interest Litigation

Public Interest Litigation in High Court or Supreme Court

  • Both the High court and supreme court have the power to entertain a PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION
  • Since there are no statutes or rules, there cannot be a specific difference, as to which court will have jurisdiction on the PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION
  • It will purely and solely depend on the "Nature of the case", if the question involves only a small group of people being effected by action of State authority, the PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION can be filed in high court. For e.g. if there is a sewage problem in a locality effecting 50 families, the PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION can be filed in High court.
  • If a large section of people is effected whether by State Government or Central Government, PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION can be filed in Supreme Court For e.g. placing a ban on adult movies, prohibition industrial unit from causing pollution etc.
