More Judges, and Changes

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The CJI’s emo­tional words have touched our hearts. Here, a lay­man may wish to help with a few ideas. All in­sti­tu­tions start work at 9:00 am; so should the courts, in­stead of at 11:00 am. The roll call and post­pon­ing of cases con­tin­ues till 1:30 pm, while hun­dreds of ad­vo­cates, po­lice­men, clients, wit­nesses, etc, idle away their pro­duc­tive hours, which needs a so­lu­tion. Also, we don’t need to post­pone cases sev­eral times due to ab­sence of wit­nesses. Lastly, the sum­mer va­ca­tion when crores of cases are pend­ing could be re­viewed. Only such changes, and more judges, will solve the prob­lems fac­ing our le­gal sys­tem.
