Govt to set up 18 fast track courts to clear pendency
Jammu, Mar 20: Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Mir Saifullah Wednesday said the State Government is considering establishing 18 Fast Track Courts, eight of the rank of District and Sessions Judges and 10 of the rank of Civil Judges (Senior Division), to clear the pendency of cases and provide speedy justice to the needy.
The Minister said this in the Legislative Assembly today.
He said the Government is going to establish a Law Commission in the State in 2013 to help the Government to make new laws. “The Members of the Commission would get suggestions from people and submit their recommendations to Government,” he said.
The Minister said the Government is implementing State Litigation Policy in letter and spirit for helping general public in getting speedy justice and timely disposal of their cases. He said the performance of Government Advocates, Public Prosecutors and Standing Counsels is reviewed periodically through this policy. “The J&K High Court has fixed time period for disposal of old cases in civil as well as criminal matters,” he said.
