Public Interest Litigation (PIL) law


Public Interest Litigation (PIL) law in Nepal allows individuals or organizations to raise issues of public concern and seek legal remedies on behalf of the broader public interest. PIL enables citizens to challenge actions or omissions by the government, public authorities, or private entities that violate constitutional or legal rights or harm the environment, public health, or social justice. The Supreme Court of Nepal has played a significant role in shaping PIL by entertaining petitions and ensuring access to justice for marginalized and vulnerable groups. PIL cases have been instrumental in advocating for human rights, environmental protection, and social welfare in Nepal. The PIL mechanism empowers citizens to bring attention to matters that impact society as a whole, promoting transparency, accountability, and fairness in governance and contributing to the realization of a just and equitable society.
