The Hon'ble Supreme Court , dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) petition which sought directions to implement the recommendations of the NITI AYOG on streamlining medical research in India.

Taking note of the same, Hon'ble CJI DY Chandrachud remarked, “People who have personal grievances cannot parade around by filing these PILs....How can a PIL be filed? He's personally involved in the matter. His last prayer is to issue a writ of mandamus to constitute a Committee to examine the irregularities in the conduct of the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Proceedings pertaining to Frontier Lifeline Private Limited..why should we entertain a writ petition? He's directly personally involved. This is not a PIL at all..”
