More than 4.22 crore cases are pending across Indian courts, and out of these, more than 33 lakh cases have been pending for more than 10 years. There are several reasons behind this scenario ranging from delayed process, shortage of judges, lack of judicial infrastructure, low case disposal rates, to an overall ineffective court and case management. Various efforts are being made to deal with these chronic issues at an institutional and individual level. Delivering justice to individuals quickly and cheaply is today’s overarching goal for the courts. One of the crucial elements is that modern court procedures are more heavily influenced by customs rather than by principles of productivity.
