Eliminate pendency of overdue court cases

It will not be an exaggeration to say that the single biggest reason for every ailment of our country including backwardness, poverty and corruption is the failure of our judiciary to deliver justice on time. In fact, the judicial process has become a laughing stock. People have no faith that justice will be so delivered on time that it will be effective.

Businesses and private individuals make out of court settlements. Criminals do not fear the law. Litigants claiming their legal and constitutional rights give up mid-way when the process stretches to 4-5 times their expectations and sometimes for decades. Rule of law is the first casualty, citizens’ trust in the state is another. With the lack or absence of trust comes cynicism leading to the third and fatal assault on the collective sense of right and wrong.
