‘Judiciary without judges’ a hollow system

In an alarming scenario, a whopping 2.8 crore cases are pending in district courts across the country which are short of nearly 5,000 judicial officers.

The situation has led to suggestions in two Supreme Court reports; ‘Indian Judiciary Annual Report 2015-16’ and ‘Subordinate Courts of India: A Report on Access to Justice 2016’ to increase the judicial manpower ‘manifold’ at least seven to overcome the crisis by appointing about 15,000 more judges in the coming few years. “Justice is one critical component of citizenship which cannot be neglected.” said the report.
