REQUIREMENT OF FUNDS !!

Even for running a charitable entity, there is a constant need for funds, in order to meet the day to day requirements !! It has to be understood that, a charitable entity would require all inputs which any profit making entity requires & best talent has to be employed, to ensure efficient and resultant satisfying services !! Rent-Staff salary-Printing & Stationary-Electricity-Communication &various other variable costs are incurred during the course of executing operations of the charitable entity, apart from the costs incurred, towards the set up of the same. However the trustees do not have any right to withdraw any monetary compensation, towards the services rendered by them, towards formation and execution of the services of the charitable entity !!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS !!

Q.01] WHY DO YOU DEPLOY PIL. AS A TOOL, FOR DELIVERING REMEDY TO SOCIAL PERILS ??

ANS.01] MOST HUMBLY, GIVEN OUR EXPERIENCE AND RESULTANT ANALYSIS - IN THE SCENARIO OF COLIATION GOVERNMENT, EVEN THE MOST RESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUALS AT HELM OF AFFAIRS, WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO IMPLEMENT ALL NATIONALLY BENEFICIAL DECISIONS AT WILL AND ALSO IN ANY SCENARIO -[NO MATTER COLIATION OR SINGLE PARTY] THERE ARE MULTIPLE AREAS WHICH NEED CORRECTION - BUT EITHER [THE AREAS DEMANDING ATTENTION] ARE BEYOND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GOVERNMENT OR THE GOVERNMENT WILLINGLY HAS IGNORED IT OR ALSO THAT - DUE TO MISSCOMMUNICATION, THE AREA OF CONCERN, IS FAR BEHIND IN LIST OF PRIORITIES OF THE GOVERNMENT !!

INDIA AS A NATION – STANDS OUT AS A FIT CASE FOR EXISTENCE OF CHARITABLE ENTITIES (EXECUTING PIL.S) SINCE WE ARE A NATION IN WHICH – UNEDUCATED AND POOR ARE IN MAJORITY !!
DUE TO THE FACTOR OF ILLETRACY PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE OF THE STRONG LEGAL TOOL OF PIL. TO SEEK JUSTICE AND BECAUSE OF CONSTRAIN IN MONETARY RESOURCES, CITIZENS ARE NOT ABLE TO AFFORD THE HIGH COST OF LITIGATION.

AT TIMES TO MAKE A NON SENSITIVE GOVERNMENT MACHINERY ACT AND SUPPLEMENT GOVERNMENT LAW ENFORCEMENT TASK - EITHER LONG DRAWN CONTROVERSIAL CAMPAIGNS HAVE TO BE FOUGHT ON PUBLIC PLATFORM, WITH DUE MEDIA AID OR LEGAL RECOURSE TO PIL. HAS TO BE AVAILED !!

THE ADVANTAGE WITH THE LATTER IS THAT - IT IS LESS CONTROVERSIAL AND CREATES LESS FUSS AND DULY ABIDED BY GOVERNMENTS. MOST IMPORTANTLY – THERE IS NO REMEDIAL ISSUE, BEFORE THE NATION, WHICH CANNOT BE ADDRESSED BY THE TOOL OF PIL. HENCE IT CAN BE CONCLUDED THAT – PIL.S HAVE UNIVERSAL APPLICATION. (BE IT AN ISSUE OF ENVIRONMENT/FOOD SECURITY/EMPLOYMENT/RELIGION/EDUCATION/SECURITY/DEMOCRATIC TOOLS/ROAD-RAIL-AIR SAFETY, AMONG MANY OTHERS).

Q.02] HOW WILL WE AS DONOR’S, MONITOR THE PERFORMANCE OF THE N.G.O. ??

ANS.02] "IN RECENT TIMES THERE IS A STRONG QUESTION MARK ON THE CREDIBLITY OF NGO.S, WITH MULTIPLE INSTANCES OF FRAUD AND ALSO OF MUCH LESS DELIVERABLES AGAINST COMMITMENTS" !!
THE PROBLEM IS FURTHER AGGRAVATED FROM THE FACTS THAT - IT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP A REALITY CHECK ON WORKINGS OF NGO.S, AS BECAUSE IT IS NOT FEASIBLE TO EXECUTE A MONITORING STRUCTURE (BY THE DONOR), FOR THE DOINGS OF DONATION RECEIVING NON GOVERNMENTAL ORGANISATIONS !!

**however in case of civil advocacy through PIL.S there cannot be anything as, deceitful under performance - since we can either perform by the petition being accepted & judgement being delivered thereafter or non perform by petition being rejected.
For visiting our performance scores, only the morning daily or a visit to the court website is required, contrary to a monitoring structure as in other cases !!
And finally for all the advantages the tool of PIL. has to offer - in no way it has any less impact ...

If executed with precision i.e. with the right mix of - thoughtful cause+(rti. replies+media articles) as evidences+good drafting+excellent court presentation - the targeted results are sure to reflect !!
Most recent example of a great social impact, is also the ban on GUTKA PACKING IN PLASTIC !! In no way we can re knock your doors, without delivering convincingly and we would re emphasise - the best input being that, there is no under cover operation required to evaluate our work, except the news in the morning daily or visiting the website of the Honoured Supreme Court !!
Further we will published balance sheet regularly in our website, so that both short & long term evaluation of financials can be executed.

Q.03] WHY DO YOU NEED MONETARY SUPPORT, GIVEN THE FACT – THAT ONLY FOR (2) PIL.S JUDGEMENT HAS BEEN DELIVERED ??

ANS.03] THE FOLLOWING WHICH ARE UNDERSTATED ARE THE ONLY CLARIFICATIONS WE HAVE -
A] THERE ARE BOTH SUCCESSFULL AND FAILED PIL.S AND TILL ADMISSION HEARING, BOTH INVOLVE ALMOST EQUAL COSTS.

B] APART FROM THE IDEA OF THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE PETITION, ALL OTHER INPUTS INVOLVE VARIABLE COSTS – “BE IT EXECUTING RTI.; PREPARING PETITION DRAFT; CONSULTING SENIOR LAWYERS; RECRUITING LAWYER FOR HEARING; RECRUITING LAWYER FOR PETITION DRAFTING; COURT FEE AND FINALLY COST OF MULTIPLE TRAVELLING ASSIGNMENTS, WHICH NEED TO BE UNDERTAKEN TO FACILITATE THE WHOLE PROCESS” !!

** provisioning for penal costs, in case the court finds a petition to be frivolous, needs to be made.

**Contempt petitions need to be filed, if the order of court is not being implemented.

C] WE HAVE NOT VENTURED INTO THE DOMAIN OF THE PIL.S, TO MAKE AN EXIT AFTER TRYING OUT WITH (5) PIL.S !! WE HAVE A STRONG INCLINIATION TO DELIVER PUBLIC WELFARE AND IT IS ONLY POST EVALUATION OF RESOURCES AT OUR DISPOSAL, THAT WE HAVE RESOLUTED TO ADOPT THE TOOL OF PIL.S !! TO SUSTAIN IN LONG TERM, WE CANNOT DO WITHOUT THE KIND OF SUPPORT, WHICH WE ARE SEEKING. MOREOVER WE HAVE REALISED THAT IF WE INITIATE PIL.S IN REGULARITY – IT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN UP AS A FULL TIME ACTIVITY AND NOT A HOBBY. PREPARING A COURT WORTHY PIL. DRAFT REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING – (1) EXTENSIVE SURFING OF MULTIPLE NEWSPAPERS, FOR INPUTS ON SUBJECT MATTER OVER A SUBSTANTIAL TIME FRAME. (2) INITIATING HUNDREDS OF RTI. QUERIES TO MULTIPLE ENTITIES, OF WHOM ONLY A COUPLE OF THEM EXTEND FAVOURABLE REPLIES (WHICH CAN SERVE THE INTEREST OF PETITION) WHEREAS MAXIMUM ENTITIES TRY TO EVADE THE ISSUE & EXTRACTING REPLIES FROM THEM, REQUIRES ESCALATION TO NODAL & APPEALATE AUTHORITIES &THEREAFTER TO STATE OR CENTRAL INFORMATION COMMISSION (AN ACTIVITY WHICH INVARIABLY CONSUMES THE RESOURCE OF TIME AMONG OTHERS). (3) ALSO MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS NEED TO BE EXTENDED TO MULTIPLE GOVT. AUTHORITIES (WHO ARE CONNECTED TO SUBJECT MATTER)SO THAT THEIR VIEWS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER OF PETITION ARE AVAILABLE & CAN BE EXTEND AS REFERENCE IN PETITION DRAFT. THEREAFTER ONCE INPUTS FROM – (A) NEWSPAPERS; (B) RTI. QUERIES; (C) REPRESENTATION, ARE AVAILABLE – WE EXECUTE THE DRAFT (WITH HELP FROM – LAWYERS). *****NORMALLY IT OF TAKES MINIMUM (6) MONTHS – FROM IDENTIFYING THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE PIL. TO IT’S LEGAL DRAFT BEING READY. WE UNLIKE LETTER PETITIONS – ENGAGE IN EXTENSIVE WORK – TO JUSTIFY THE CAUSE BEING PETIONED.

D] AT TIMES FOR MANAGING THE GAMES OF COURTROOM, THE SERVICES OF A REPUTED & EFFICIENT LAWYER ARE INDISPENSABLE. FURTHER WHEN MULTIPLE PIL.S NEED TO BE EXECUTED IN THE SAME TIME PERIOD ACROSS VARIOUS COURTS – IT WILL BECOME IMPOSSIBLE TO BOTH DRAFT AND ALSO PRESENT THE PIL. IN THE COURTROOM. WE ARE ALSO LOOKING AT HAVING A TEAM OF TALENTED AND FRESH YOUNG MINDS, WHO CAN WORK WITH US TOWARDS RESEARCHING ON ISSUES AND DRAFTING OF PETITIONS, SO THAT MULTIPLE ASSIGNMENTS CAN BE TAKEN UP AT THE SAME TIME PERIOD.

E] TIME IS THE FASTEST DEPLETING AND THE MOST IMPORTANT RESOURCE AND ALTHOUGH, IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE, TO DELIVER WITHOUT THE REQUIRED MONETARY HELP (BEING SOUGHT) – THE FACT, WHICH CANNOT BE IGNORED IS – “THAT PRODUCTIVITY LEVELS WILL BE AT THEIR ZENIT AND MAXIMUM RESULTS CAN BE ACHIEVED IN MINIMUM TIME FRAME – SHOULD HELP COME TO US” !! TO SUM IT UP, THE NEED FOR SUPPORT ARISES FOR ENSURING A OPERATIONAL AND SUSTAINABLE ENTITY – IN THE FIELD OF PIL.S !!
