Author(s): Atul Pal

Abstract: Public Interest Litigation is a constitutional remedy guaranteed to every citizen of India. In recent times, there is substantial amount of misuse which is on a steep rise especially post the Covid-19 era. This misuse is happening in the form of frivolous PIL and luxury litigation. This paper attempts to study the development of PIL in respect to the current rise of frivolous PIL and its misuse. A historical perspective has also been given alongside the study of relevant case laws which has shaped the attitude of the courts in respect to matters and petitions which are described as “luxury litigation”. The paper also makes attempts to provide suggestion on what could possibly be done to get away with this practise.
