Delhi High Court has imposed heavy costs of ₹50,000 on a Petitioner seeking financial assistance of ₹70,000 from the Central Government for implementing his project on clean environment.

While dismissing his PIL, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan highlighted that the petition is full of absurdities, and noted that filing of such type of litigation is, to say the least, a complete waste of judicial resources.

The present writ petition was filed by Mr Trilok Goyal seeking either financial assistance or a direction to be issued to the central government to implement his project on clean environment in the interest of justice.

The Petitioner had suggested that a team of about 30 persons from various government departments may be placed at his disposal for this purpose.

While dismissing the relief claimed, the court noted that:

'No ground is made out by the petitioner in person for allotment of such a huge amount for his project. The petition is lacking in fundamental particulars – including as to the nature of the project which the petitioner seeks to develop and implement with the assistance of the respondents. It ought to be kept in mind that the public money and resources cannot be wasted in this manner.'

Therefore, the court directed the Petitioner to pay costs in tune of ₹50,000 to DSLSA within a period of 4 weeks which will be utilised in their Access to Justice programme.
