Not judges but system at fault, taking steps to improve it: Union Law Minister Kiran Rijuju

Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju was speaking at a conference on ‘Sustainable Development in India: Evolution and Legal Perspective’ organised by the Law Commission of India at Mohanlal Sukhadia University in Udaipur while he made the remark on Saturday that it is “not the fault of the judge but of the system”, and the government is taking more steps to address the issue.

While focusing on the efforts to repeal redundant and obsolete laws, improve the infrastructure of courts and equip them with technology he said “We are moving towards the kind of system that should be there in the country,”

The Minister said the number of pending cases has crossed 4.90 crore.

“It is not a good thing to have so many cases pending in any country or society. It has several reasons... the condition of judges is also bad. One judge handles 50-60 cases in a single day."

They dispose of so many cases but the number which comes daily is double.

He said “The common man asks why the pendency is so high, but it is not known to people how much a judge works. It is not the fault of the judge, but of the system”.

He impressed upon 'Technology' a major solution for reducing pendency is and the courts are being equipped with technologies across the
country in order to make them paperless.

He said “We are halfway there. Now we are giving the final shape to it. High courts, lower courts, and tribunals are being well-equipped with technologies. It was just because of the success of ecourts phase-II that hearings were conducted through video conference during the Covid pandemic”.
