The Delhi High Court, through a practice direction, has reiterated the directions passed earlier this month by the Bench of Justices S Muralidhar and IS Mehta regarding filing of writ petitions, including PILs.

The notification states, …every writ petition (which includes a PIL petition) filed in the Registry (and not obviously a letter or post card) should be supported by an affidavit which, apart from complying with the legal requirements in terms of the governing Rules of the High Court, should clearly state which part of the averments…made…is true to the Petitioner’s personal knowledge derived from records or based on some other source and what part is based on legal advice which the Petitioner believes to be true.”

The directions were first passed by the Bench While Dismissing the PIL filed by Dr. Subramanian Swamy Seeking a Court- Monitored SIT probe  into the death of socialite Sunanda Pushkar. The Court, during the hearing, had observed that some PILs are political interest petitions.
