You are free to draft file and persue Public Interest Litigation with or without the help of Advocate. The answer to your second question has to be in affirmative for the reason that after filing any case (including but not limited to PIL) you (through Advocate or in person with the permission of the Court) have to plead your case on the questions of your locus, admissibility, limitation, jurisdiction, availiability of alternate/equal efficatious remedy etc. before the court of law. Just out of curiocity may I request you to kindly go through the Hon'ble Jharkhand High Court Rules and bye laws in advance which shall be helpful in sorting out the procedural query/ies.
As a public spirited person who is litigant in each and every activities of the society you are fully availed with the provisions of the Indian constitution under the endowment of Art.226 to approach the court in the form of PIL. I admire your ability to draft the petition too also by the purview of the Advocates act of 1961 s.30 If the court allow you may also plead before the Hon'ble court.
But i insist better consult a practising lawyer since the case must be prominent an to be won..............
thanks all for replying my query. I am novice about filing PIL. It is clear that hiring advocate is optional. I read that even a postcard to supreme court can be considered PIL.
My second query is whether there may be many dates for PIL also? becuase there is not the question of witness and evidences. whether procedure of PIL also takes many dates and long period like the other litigation?
I also understand from my advocae friends that even letter written to Chief Justice may be converted in a writ and court will arrange for an advocate to plead at govt cost, if there is public interest affecting large number of citizens or if there is breach of fundamental rights of a citizen.
