Monday, 19th March 2019

"Legal experts emphasise need to fill vacancies and importance of increasing tribunals, and alternate dispute resolution

Former central information commissioner Shailesh Gandhi on Saturday proposed a model to reduce the judicial backlog, saying, “If we fill the vacancies we will not need more judges.”

He was speaking on ‘Judicial pendency, challenges and solutions’ at an event organised by Mumbai First and KC College at the college.

Mr. Gandhi, presenting his ‘formula’, said, “Draw up a list of retirements for next five years and renew it every year; estimate vacancies due to deaths, resignations, promotions based on previous three years’ data; and every year, forecast the number of cases for next three years and factor the additional judges required.” Adding up the three, the process of exams and collegium recommendations can be started every six months."
