JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED
Getting involved in judicial systems i.e. Fighting
any case for justice is very time consuming.
System is not efficient.
1. Because of system being time consuming,
expenditure also increases.
2. Citizens don’t trust judiciary, that’s why they
try to solve issues at their level which
IT’S ALL ABOUT POWER
The power arising out of status, contacts or
wealth is above all. The omnipotent people has
strong impact on decision of the court.
1. Judgement is not accurate.
2. It gives way for corruption to generate.
3. Poor and middle class people hesitates to go to
court for justice and are left hopeless.
NO WITNESS PROTECTION
Witness of cases like rape, murder, violence etc. are
not given any witness protection. They are threatened
and pressurized to switch their statement.
1. It effects the decision making procedure of
2. The witnesses are forced to change their
statement because speaking truth can even
cost their lives.
OLD IS NOT ALWAYS GOLD
1. Lower level decision making bodies like khap
panchayats are still working on religious and
orthodox sentiments not on laws mentioned.
2. The laws take too much time to meet the present
Laws are made in order to suit society and
situation, but our law system is not amended
periodically in order to keep it upgraded. And it
takes too much time to amend a law.
SOLUTIONS FOR MAKING
JUDICIAL SYSTEM EFFECIENT
There is no legal time limit for a particular
case to be solved. On an average it takes 15
years to solve any case. Amendments should
be introduced to divide cases in different
categories with a prescribed period of time in
which they should be solved.
There are 1734 fast track courts in India currently
which have solved 32.34 lakh cases. Although, 6.56
lakh cases are pending in courts, which shows that
more fast track courts is the need of hour. The
budget for the fast track court should be increased.
More recruitments for law authorities should be
made corresponding to rate of increase in
Laws should be regularly amended to keep them
upgraded. The procedure for amending law should
be changed. Citizens should also be asked about
their favour, what actually they want. People who
amend laws should be those who are intellectual
and who has studied law rather than those who
are sitting in the Lok Sabha. A committee of such
persons should be made to keep watch on the
AN EYE FOR AN EYE
Laws in our country should be made so strict that
people fear to commit any crime. And apart from
making law a body should be made to govern the
implementation of laws made. For example, In
Delhi gang rape case, a rapist who was found guilty
for rape and murder both was given to juvenile
court and was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment
even for such a grave crime.
India can never be truly independent if citizens
can’t live freely. People are afraid to claim for their
own rights. Witness protection should be given to
witnesses of cases like murder, rape etc. So that
people will not be afraid to speak truth. People
should be made aware about basic laws from
initial stages of their lives. VIPs should not interfere
in making and implementation of laws. VIPs should
not be given priority in making decision.
