The Supreme Court gave right for victims, people and voluntary organisations to know the doors of judiciary through Public Interest Litigation (PIL). A PIL can be filed through a letter or in form of petitions attaching newspaper clippings. Even, the SC can accept a case as Sumoto. Prominent lawyer Prashant Bhushan effectively used PIL to unearth more than 50 major scandals including Rs 2 lakh crore coal scam, 2G scam and appointment of CVC. Right now, he is fighting on a PIL against allotment of 4G spectrum to Reliance.
