Abstract (Original Language): 
A pressure group is an association of people having common interests who try to achieve that object by influencing the government. H. Zeigler defines pressure group as “an organized aggregate which seems to influence the context of governmental decision without attempting to its members informal governmental capacities”. Pressure groups are a part of the political process and they attempt to reinforce or change the direction of government policy, but they do not wish, as pressure groups, to become the government.
