The PILgrimage…

Indeed common man’s belief in court have started rising as they don’t have option but to start filing PIL (Public Interest Litigations) to get them to be heard and provided for their queries. It was the turn of Indian Railways this week to get a directive from Karnataka High court to increase the frequency of the number of trains between the two cities and lay a parallel line along the existing route to avoid abnormal delay because of crossing of trains.

Recent the brutality towards stray dogs also required a PIL filed by a senior citizen, B Krishna Bhat, to sought measures to control stray dogs’ population, while citing the recent havoc created by them. The Court has already issued notices to Union and State Governments, Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, Animal Welfare Board and Akhila Karnataka Prani Daya Sangha on the petition. The petitioner has challenged Rule 7 of Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules, 2001, which does not permit killing of dogs by the civic body.

To make the state a “lottery-free zone“, The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday ordered issue of notices to the Central and State Governments, Meghalaya and Sikkim on a public interest litigation (PIL)

The prestigious BMIC, Bangalore-Mysore infrastructure corridor project struggled it’s way through courts and few PILs to make it a success …

The reasons vary from appointment of teachers , protest the airport congestion charges or even fixing toilets in court complexes, protecting forests, the PIL seems to be the way to go!!

Not to mention the numerous amount of PIL on land allotments, , layout formation and regularization. If this PILgrimage continues then perhaps courts have to start PIL Inward departments outside most of the Govt Departments, isn’t it?
