Public interest law movement which came to be known as public interest litigation (PIL) in India and England is perhaps the most striking innovation in Indian judiciary. It emerged as a part of the
legal aid movement directed towards the protection of the rights of minorities, women, children, the downtrodden and weaker sections of the society. The legal system had failed to protect their interests because of lack of access to justice, lack of standing or economic and other disablilities. The traditional legal or constitutional system could not provide quick relief in cases where interest of a large number of people was at stake. This led to the emergence of PIL. Judiciary came forward to provide quick remedy to suffering masses by relaxing the rule of ‘ locus standi ’. It means a right of appearance in a court of justice or before a legislative body on a given question. Such steps have led to the emergence of PIL and Judicial Activism.
