Public Interest Litigation
Any public spirited citizen can move/approach the court for the public cause by filing a petition:
1. in Supreme Court under Art.32 of the Constitution;
2. In High Court under Art.226 of the Constitution; and
3. in the Court of Magistrate under Sec.133, Cr. P.C.
It is essentially a new legal ambit in which court of law can initiate and enforce action to serve and secure significant public interest
