This Article aims to discuss the challenges to judicial intervention in policy-making and the constraints on the courts' efficacy in bringing about social change. For this purpose, this Article focuses on the CNG case, where the Indian Supreme Court decided the fuel choice for Delhi, to enforce the right to a clean environment. This analysis is important in identifying means for Civil Society Organisations to make better use of the judicial system in effecting social change.
