before going directly to difference b/w pressure groups and interest groups you should have explained first what is interest group. then, move to others. in differences also which difference is being dealt was not clear. finally please keep pitch a bit loud.
interest groups when become social they are known to be pressure groups. there is no such differences between interest group and pressure groups.. pressure group forms when interest group works for the public benefit as whole!! also when the interest group transform into a pressure group they transform some of their own features such as :- 1.they become strictly organised 2.they are pressure focused 3.they now began to influence the policies of the government 4.becomes harsher in attitude .. hope this help you ????
differencebetween pressure and public interest groups
Hey Charu, The slide on "Difference b/w Interest Group and Pressure Group" doesn't make any sense as in that page you are trying explain the similarities b/w the two, if I got you aptly. When you say "Movements have loose organisation" Which movements are you talking about - Interest or Pressure or Both?? When you say "Their decision making...." Who are "their" here - Interest Group or Pressure Group or Both?? When you say "They depend....." Who are "they" here - Interest Group or Pressure Group or Both?? If you're going to answer "Both" then shouldn't the slide be named as "Similarities" rather than "Differences" Please let me know if I'm mistaken here, will need to update my hand notes. Thanks.
Yeah SG aptly pointed. Charu Modi need to be aware of what she is teaching, as it lowers the quality as well as the credibility.

There is no such differences between pressure groups and interest groups. But informally we can say pressure groups puts pressure on ruling govt. for their policies where as interest group can be based on general issues as well.

I think in that slide, difference between direct participation in politics and indirect methods like pressure groups and interest groups, to influence the decisions in a democracy is explained.

  6. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRESSURE AND INTEREST GROUP * Like an interest group, a movement also attempts to influence poitics rather than directly take part in influence politics rather than directly take part in electoral competition. movements have a loose organization. Their decision making is more informal and flexible. They depend much more on spontaneous mass participation.
