Thousands and thousands number of court cases are pending with different courts starting from sub-ordinate courts to Supreme Court of India. If We may discuss about a writ petitions pending with High Court, the process is that after filing of the Writ petition,the case is brought to the judicial authority for admission and issuance of notice to the Opposite Parties/Respondents for submission of their counter. Some times Government or private parties take years to gethers to file the counter one different grounds, which may believle or not. However, after filling up counter, the Pettioner may take further time to file Rejoinder or sub-counter to contenst the contents/averements. It may also takes too much time to file the rejoinder. The concerned judicial Authority maintains notes of arguments/contents of the pleaders/lawers in their proceeding notings. Than question of pleading of both the pleader and counter pleader arise, when the dispute/case is fixed for hearing in a particular date.
To finalise a case. some times it take 10 to 20 years and 30 years, even some time the continued for years together,and the general public are harrassed by moving to courts regularly. This happens,because of non-assignment target to the Judges. Truely speaking, one court case can be finalised with 3 to 4 days, if keen interest will be taken to finalise the disputes within the stipulated period in a positive way. There is no shortage of talented advocates, in the country, who are struggling in their life to earn some thing in their proffession. There are sufficient resources in India to provide assistance to the lawyers/advocates at the entry stage and even if government can establish different 1st track courts by appointing the talented lawyers/advocates, a large numbers of disputes will be settled, and in other way the lawers/advocates will be able to earn some amount for their particular job. It is seen that some times, some of the judges support the irregularities in a colourable way, fails to delever the truthfull judgements either by threatenings,political pressure or pressure of the boss.
An example of the state or central Administrative Tribunal may be cited here. Suppose an aggrieved Public official or officer file an Original Application,counter affidavit,re-counter submitted in time, but the date of herings are adjourned from time to time on different grounds. The delay may be due to litigated rules and regulations or other-wise which are best known to the Judges. Hence, question of target plays an important role in the judicial administration.
Not only in judicial,but also in all the government organisations, there should be specific target to achieve the aim, for which the organisaion is established for. In capable employees should be trained to follow the time-frame for smooth discharge of their duties. There, is also a need for installation of web-cameras in all the government offices including private organisations to asses the work load of the employees, and it the full duty of government to see that instead of taking vindictive action against the erring official, they should be properly trained to perform their duties.
