PIL

advocate

can a lower court/supreme court convert an ordinary writ petition into public interest litigation because of the fact that  prominent govt officials like ex minister are involved in the case???

As far as I know, it is not possible. A public interest petition should be filed by the applicant. The court cannot convert suo motu into PIL.  An interesting question, sreenath. I am also curious to know the correct answer from the learned people.

Dear Sreenath

 

In appropriate cases, if the issue involves the interest of public at large, the high court as well as supreme court have converted writ petitions to PILs. 

 

Best regards.,

Just few months before I heard that Supreme Court itself has converted a writ as  PIL.

 

It is an appropriate treat.

 

In the present scenario when none is shouldering their responsibility the sou moto action can always be done and very necessary and should be appreciated by any responsible person.

You have to understand there is no obligation for me to respond to all of the postings of every member here, Ram sir. Let me humbly reply you that I have never kept silent when I feel I could respond to a specific query.

This query is from a student like me and I felt to say what I thought correct. I would not do the same for a query which requires expertise to answer, me being a student and specially when I am not sure of the answer.
