Dear Anvi, A "Public Interest Litigation", is filed in the same manner, as a writ petition is filed. In High CourtIf a Public Interest Litigation is filed in a High court, then two (2) copies of the petition have to be filed. Also, an advance copy of the petition has to be served on the each respondent, i.e. opposite party, and this proof of service has to be affixed on the petition.In Supreme CourtIf a Public Interest Litigation is filed in the Supreme court, then (4)+(1) (i.e. 5) sets of petition has to be filed opposite party is served, the copy only when notice is issued. Procedure to File a Public Interest Litigation1 Proceedings, in the PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION commence and carry on in the same manner, as other cases.2 However, in between the proceedings if the judge feels he may appoint a commissioner, to inspect allegations like pollution being caused, trees being cut, sewer problems, etc.3 After filing of replies, by opposite party, and rejoinder by the petitioner, final hearing takes place, and the judge gives his final decision.
