Regards to PIL- Chinese expert praises Indian courts-

Dear All,
PIL(Public Interest Litigation) is really the easy,safe and cheap way to get Justice.We should be really proud of our Judges who thinks in right direction in delivering cases to poor and common masses where they are denied access to justice and largely ignored.Only thing the Litigant needs regards to PIL,one should be 100% true to cases.There are N-numbers cases related to PIL whereby Indian court has given access to PIL and the common masses has got the Justice through it.But again the implementation part to deliver lies on the officials which need to look into.We should purse such cases till justice is implemented.Recently we have seen the Bombay high court that pulled up the state government and asked why it failed to provide the entire quota of food grains sanctioned by the Centre,which was not delivered to ration shop meant for poor.This was the simple case of PIL,where the Govt officials were called in court for their negligence.(
We need to create more awareness for PILand also demand for much waited Judicial Reform to take in.
Thanks something good has appeal to Chinese people which must be carried forward.
The below article may be small news but an eye opener for all of us.

Chinese courts are much weaker than India's, an opinion piece in a Chinese daily said, adding that initiating a PIL in India "comes with no political risk, but it is not the case in China". The article, "Indian's open court an example for China", was authored by Wang Sixin, a law professor with Communication University of China.

Wang, who visited India as part of a delegation of Chinese legal professors, wrote in Global Times that in India, the common law tradition lets judges, especially in higher courts, play a pivotal role.

"They even can begin litigation just based on a news report or a letter from a petitioner, whether a lawyer or not. Just about anyone can initiate PIL (Public Interest Litigation), often for very little cost, whereas in China the individual has no right to initiate PIL unless his or her rights are directly undermined," wrote Wang on Friday.

The opinion piece went on to say the doors of the Indian courts were "always open to PIL, and initiating PIL comes with no political risk, but it is not the case in China.
