Joshi L.M.

Online published on 28 September, 2012.


An organised interest group is a totality of many parts, which form its characteristics. The main characteristics of an interest group consist of its organisation, membership, leadership, office, election system, constitution and finance. The ideology of an interest group provides the basis for its functions and activities. The activities of an interest group include security to its members, presentation of demands through seminars, workshops and conferences, maintenance of information bureau and participation of members in seminars and similar activities. The centre point of group activities are the institutions of the government. It concentrates its activities on legislature, executive and judiciary. Besides, it also seeks support from political parties, like-minded institutions and persons. In a democratic system, an interest group has many opportunities for the pursuit of its interests.
