Honourable Madan Lokur, Retired Indian Supreme Court Judge.

Over the years, the PIL jurisdiction of the courts has expanded and has covered a series of rights and interests of the general public. The PIL jurisdiction has embraced issues of environment, governance, electoral reforms, and judicial independence and so on. Unfortunately, the PIL jurisdiction of the courts has also been misused by some litigants and it has also invited criticism from the Government. It is proposed to discuss the advantages of PIL in the context of social justice and human rights and why the criticism of judicial activism is not justified.
