  • The Delhi Court today said that a Public Interest Litigation, PIL, can be preferred for those who are unable to come to court.

    The High Court made the observation while dismissing an NGO’s plea seeking disbursal of salaries to primary teachers of schools run by North and East Delhi municipal corporations.

    A bench comprising Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said the teachers can always approach the court if their salaries have not been paid to them. They can always initiate action in accordance with the law.

    The bench said they see no reason to entertain the teachers’ writ petition as a PIL on behalf of those who are themselves educated.

    The high court said a PIL can be preferred normally for persons who are unable to come to court either due to ignorance illiteracy or poverty.

    It said for such types of petitioners or public, the writ petition at their behest is tenable in law.
