It is not merely working hours and holidays. Even the fairness of judgments and their enforcement are  very important. Firstly the judiciary does not even punish corrupt and delinquent public servants. It is rarely that they make even some meaningless comments on the criminals if they are public servants. This is one of the major reasons why these public servants are repeatedly committing crimes and even making them more and more serious! When it comes to orders in favour of litigants from the public again they fail to enforce their orders making the citizens run from pillar to post in vain and finally resort to litigation in the nature of contempt of court! Anyhow, suffice to say, everything is rotten in our judiciary and reforming it would involve herculean effort!

The  move by the Allahabad High Court to curtail its summer vacation is a step in the right direction. Infact the Supreme Court which currently functions for less than nine months a year should have taken the lead to increase its court working days so that it could have been also replicated by all Courts across the country to being down the current enormous pendency of cases.

The mountain of pile up of cases is indeed a matter of immense concern. Over three crore cases in trial Courts, a whopping 41 lakh in the 24 High Courts and a mind boggling over 60,000 in the Supreme Court is no easy task to grapple with.

The concept of evening and night Courts is impractical and having been tried in some states has miserably failed. Infact reducing the number of court holidays may be the way to go. Optimizing the working of the Courts during the day must be the thrust by possibly even increasing the Court working hours by an hour or two.  But for all this to happen only persons with sound knowledge of law and impeccable integrity must be selected as Judges at all levels of the Judiciary.
