Rajasthan HC Judge Raises Concerns Over Overwhelming Caseload: 1,600+ Cases Listed in One Day

A Rajasthan High Court single judge recently expressed concern over the simultaneous listing of over 1,600 cases in a single day. This situation arose due to the transfer of cases from another bench that was not in session on that particular day.

Justice Arun Monga termed the situation chaotic when he saw a staggering number of 1,609 cases spread across 145 pages of the cause list before him.

“If one were to take up the entire list, with only 5 hours allocated for court proceedings, each case would barely get a mere 10 seconds, during which, not only it has to be heard, but order/ proceedings have to be dictated too,” the Court observed in the order dated March 27.

The Court further commented that the "mishmash" and "perplexing maze" created by the registry had made it challenging to distinguish the cases that were previously under its jurisdiction.

“What baffles common sense is how the Registry anticipates this bench to navigate through this labyrinthine situation, akin to unscrambling a scrambled egg,” it said.

The Court observed that a "frenzy" had consumed a significant amount of its time before actual judicial work could commence. When asked to explain how the Court was expected to manage the situation, the Registrar (Judicial) failed to provide a satisfactory answer.

To prevent similar situations in the future, the Court emphasized the importance of implementing preemptive measures to ensure seamless operation in the courtroom.
