The Hon´ble Supreme Court of India (SC), through its successive judgments has relaxed the strict rule of ´Locus Standi´ applicable to private litigation. Any person can file a PIL provided:-

• He is a member of the public acting bona fide and having sufficient interest in instituting an action for redressal of public wrong or public injury.

• He is not a mere busy body or meddlesome interloper.

• His action is not motivated by personal gain or any other oblique consideration.
