A PIL can be filed when the following conditions are fulfilled:-

• The presence of ´Public Interest´ is important to file a PIL.

• There must be a public injury and public wrong caused by the wrongful act or omission of the state or public authority.

• It is for the enforcement of basic human rights of weaker sections of the community who are down trodden, ignorant and whose fundamental and constitutional rights have been infringed.

• It must not be frivolous litigation by persons having vested interests.
