Public Interest Litigation by Dr. Mamta Rao is greatly admired and read by practitioners and students. The book reflects the concern of the judiciary in protecting and preserving the right of an individual to file a PIL, while at the same time addressing the increasing problem of rampant misuse of PIL. The book also discusses the Legal Services Authorities Act which was enacted with an avowed object of settling the disputes between the parties in an amicable manner. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated by Dr. Mamta Rao. The book incorporates all new developments and judicial decisions in the field of public interest litigation, legal aid and Lok Adalats. The author has taken great pains to explain the dynamics of public interest litigation clearly and succinctly.
"The dynamics, trends, procedural innovations, limitations and dilemmas of Public Interest Litigation have also been dealt with. Out of a huge volume of case law coming from the Supreme Court and the High Courts, priority has been given to decisions of Supreme Court on topics of importance. The concept of locus standi, the procedural and judicial innovations, the problems and the expectations from Public Interest Litigation have all been dealt with by the author in a new light. This very well researched and lucidly written book is indeed a valuable addition to the scarce literature on the subject."
