Re: Illegal slums RTI
In simple language Locus Standi means the right of a person to appear before a court of law. In the instant case, since you have been advised to get the stay obtained by another person vacated, you have to establish before the court that a wrong or harm has been caused to you on account of the stay and unless the stay gets vacated the harm caused to you cannot be set right. For that you have to establish your interest in the case quote sufficient and valid reasons for seeking the vacation of the stay. Otherwise the court will rule that you lack the standing to bring about such a suit and the case will be dismissed.

1. That you have suffered or will suffer an injury or harm - an invasion of a legally protected interest which is concrete and not abstract. This injury could be physical as well as economic.
2. There must be a reasonable cause between the injury and the earlier stay order, so that the injury is fairly traceable to the stay order granted earlier by the court.
3. It must be likely that only a favourable decision of the court by vacating the stay alone can redress the injury/harm caused to you.
These three ingredients should be a part of your petition before the court, if you are seeking vacation of the stay by impleading yourself as a party to the case.
Defeat is not final when you fall down. It is final when you refuse to get up.
