Public Interest Litigation, in simple words, means, litigation filed in a court of law, for the protection of “Public Interest”. Public Interest Litigation(PIL) is directly filed by an individual or group of people in the Court. PIL is a rule of law declared by the courts of record. However, the person (or entity) filing the petition must prove to the satisfaction of the court that the petition is being filed for public benefit and not for individual benefit. PIL is highly effective weapon for reaching social justice.
