Can a Contempt application be filed, if a direction issued under PIL is not complied by the concerned authorities? Some people say that Contempt application cannot be filed under PIL

Answers 2

Yes, you can file a contempt application if the directions are not complied with by the authorities.The person who earlier filed the petition can only file the contempt application.

Thanks.

Dear Devendra Tiwari,

Direction issued under PIL is an Order of Court, non compliance of the same amounts to Contempt of Court. Your job is to file contempt petition, it is court to decide whether it amounts to contempt or not.
