And as a result any citizen of India or any consumer groups or social action groups can approach the apex court of the country seeking legal remedies in all cases where the interests of general public or a section of public are at stake. Justice P. The court can decide: To grant or refuse the remedy requested. With these cardinal features, the PIL has been a new and revolutionary development in Indian judicial system.

Another significant Public interest litigation book is that while the Fundamental Rights can be enforced only against the State, the relief provided by the courts in Public Interest Litigation cases tends to embrace other bodies as well. Moreover, the court has no capacity to enforce its orders and in many cases the conditions have not changed. The nature of relief that can be given under this system is also innovative in nature. The exercise of the discretion by the court even where application is delayed is to be governed by the doctrine of promoting public interest and good administration. Whereas the intention of PIL is protect the interests of a section of the public at large or the natural environment. By relaxing the requirements of locus standi, and permitting any person who has sufficient interest in a matter to file a suit, the concept of PIL as developed by the Supreme Court of India has added breath and life to the Constitution and transformed it into a living document for Indians.

The court can itself take cognisance of the matter and proceed " suo motu " or cases can commence on the Public interest litigation book of any public-spirited individual. The Supreme Court of India gave all individuals in the country and the newly formed consumer groups or social action groups, an easier access to the law and introduced in their work a broad public interest perspective. It may be easy to know when such litigation is presented. Such efforts have been undertaken in the recognition that ordinary marketplace for legal services fails to provide such services to significant segments of the population and to significant interests. Since the Amar Singh petition was vague, not in conformance with the rules of procedure and contained inconsistencies, the court did not explore his primary grievance infringement of privacy.
