‘It’ll take 320 years to clear legal backlog’ – India – The Times of India


It will take the Indian judiciary 320 years to clear the backlog of 31.28 million cases, says Justice V V S Rao of the Andhra Pradesh high court.If the norm of 50 judicial officers per million becomes a reality by 2030 when the country’s population would be 1.5 to 1.7 billion, the number of judges would go up to 1.25 lakh dealing with 300 million cases.A recent study indicated that the number of new cases has direct relationship with increasing literacy rate and awareness, the judge said. (via ‘It’ll take 320 years to clear legal backlog’ – India – The Times of India).

Your honour – Your honour, this humble litigant would like to make a simple submission. Courts are like chewing gum. Chewing gum stretches, fills up the mouth, gives a pleasant sensation – and delivers zero nutrition to the consumer.

Courts are also road space! More road space means more cars. And the cycle continues. The answer, Your honour is in severe curtailment of laws.

Make lesser laws!
