The paper aims at analysing Judicial efficiency for Supreme Court, high courts and subordinate courts of India. The data is taken from Annual Reports published by the Supreme Court from 2015-16 to 2018-19. Analysis is mainly based on investigating pendency in these courts and the reasons for the ever-increasing pendency. Lack of number of judges required to dispose off cases turns out to be the major reason for this problem, thereby affecting efficiency of courts. We analyse this using various regression techniques while highlighting the importance of effective justice delivery.
