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 and at the same time addresses the increasing problem of rampant misuse of PIL. The chapter on ‘Legal Aid and Lok Adalats’ has greatly enlarged the scope of the book.
"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." Journal of Constitutional and Parliamentary Studies
