“Justice delayed is justice denied ” quoted by anonymous. Unfortunately, this quote is appropriate with a recent condition of the judiciary. According to data of National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG), there are more than 20 million cases are pending in district court also the ratio of judges per person is 1:72000. So here the Question arises how will the government provide justice to common man under article 14(The rule of law) enrich with section 21(Right to the speedy trial).
Some recent events such as the argument between CJI and law minister on a constitutional day, 1st-time historical conference of SC judges, the mysterious death of one judge etc. darkens the cloud on Judicial integrity. Till day out of 17,981 courtrooms and 14,467 residential accommodation, 3,139 court halls and 1,785 accommodations are under construction. One Indian HC judge quoted under suo motu petition that ” I have visited courtrooms that are separated by curtains. When the argument is on in one court the other stop functioning”. How ridiculous is this? The government should have to take bottom Up approach for reforms in the judiciary. The initiative should start from filling of the vacant seats of judges; the Separate committee should be placed both with government officials and apex judges to suggest reforms with all of these issues. Apex court also utilised as much as the role of NALSA(National legislative Services authority) for Judicial reforms. Priorities should give to removing issues concerning NJAC (national Judicial appointment commission) and also stringent action should be taken against frivolous petitions.
Both government and Court take front to solve this issue because yet People fight on any issue there first statement is “Aa main tujhe court main milta hu “.
