CAG – Ensuring Expeditious
& Timely Justice To All
Sectoral bifurcation of courts to ensure timely
justice in cities with a committee for village level
Current Condition Of INDIAN
Our system is based on common
law system. It is a well designed
system where it gives provision to
every aspect in every way so that
right and true outcome comes out.
The only it lacks is the speed and
the efficiency.This even empowers
the criminals and unjust people to
find a number of ways to escape as
they are granted with immense time.
According to the latest National
Crime Records Bureau figures, the
percentage of under trials in Indian
jails was 64.7 in 2011.
The government said around 3.2
crore cases were pending in high
courts and subordinate courts
across the country while 56,383
cases were pending in the Supreme
Court in december 2011.
It also said 74% of the total 3.2
crore cases were less than five years
old. Similarly, 20,334 out of the
56,383 pending cases in the apex
court were less than one year old.
That is too much of backlog.
Rather the term "backlog" has been misused and the
term "pendency" is the right word for describing the
large number of cases pending in the courts today. As
could be understood, the largest number of cases that
are actually pending in the Indian Courts are that of
minor MotorVehicle Cases, petty crimes such as
stealing, abusing, insult, slap, etc.

Reasons For The Pendency Of
Judges-Population Ratio &Vacancies of Judges -The judge population ratio is very less.There
are just 15 judges for every 1 million people in India. How much can a judge be able to
Provision of Adjournments -The main problem that resulted into pending cases is the
adjournments granted by the court it is the power of the court to postpone the hearing.
Vacations for the Courts and less court timing - why the courts should have such long
vacations when there is such huge pendency of cases in all the courts and why cant it work
for longer durations.
Ever increasing number of cases and population it is very important that we provide timely
justice to all before people loose confidence in our law system.
Well we cant do anything about the adjournment as it is the power granted to court and
there are several aspects involved in that.We even can’t change the population and increase
judge ratio in days.
But we can design a system that runs in much better way just by studying the statistics and
making the right use of unemployed advocates, lawyers and judges.

Village Level Management Of Law
System For Timely Justice
City Level Management Of Law
System For Timely Justice
This system is based on the fact that court loses its precious time in many cases that are not
that important and can be judged by people having sound knowledge in law and expert judges
aren’t required for straight forward cases.
we aim at finishing off such small cases at the local level.
» A city is divided in a number of zones depending on the crime
rate, population density and area of the city.
» Each zone will have its own court unit. A court unit will be just as
big as a bank without investing much money and infrastructure in
» Each zone’s court unit will be preceded over by a judge.
» The judge will be a retired judge or an experienced advocate i.e.
creamy layer of advocates after passing an examination will be
allowed for seat of judge.
» Each court unit will hear cases from the same locality.
» The case is registered at the nearest court unit to the applicant.

lawyers in terms of fees and help the poor to seek justice.

deal with important cases.

General Solution To Effective
Working Of Law Systems
The first and the for most thing is we can reduce the number of adjournment alloted to the
cases. Fix number of adjournments mostly just one or two maximum if issue is serious
should be granted to a case.
The court timings can be extended a bit by two hours so that two or three more cases can
be tackled every day.
The number of request for bail given by a criminals should be reduced so that the
unnecessary time given for bail hearings is saved
We should make the court work from Monday to Saturday throughout the month and only
important public holidays should be granted a holiday
