There is no rigid format for a PIL. Even letters are accepted as petitions, subject to certain conditions. The PIL should contain the following information:

  • Particulars of the cause / order / statute regarding which the petition is made;
  • Particulars of the Petitioner
  • Particulars of the Respondents
  • Declaration and undertaking of the Petitioner (that he does not have any personal interest other than public interest in the matter)
  • Facts in brief, constituting the cause
  • Any representations or petitions previously made
  • Documents relied upon
  • Prayers for Relief
