On the lines of the preamble of constitution of India
(http://indiacode.nic.in/coiweb/coifiles/preamble.htm), can we think
of a PIL seeking removal of compulsion of non-free software from every
point of such exercise?

As an imaginary condition, if Supreme Court of India asks the
Government of India to make sure that non-free software does not
remain compulsion for any purpose whatsoever, The Government of India
will have to step into the phasing out of these compulsions.
