    The Judges need not be abide with common diciplin or their own commitments. My case date on 1-04-2015 posted saying 1 week taken upto 13-01-2017. Later posted 2 weeks – see the fate of common people. More than 50% just simple cases, our syst makes complicated as they don’t want to modify. Thanks for your media an attempt to improve.

  • H. Rathnakar Shetty says:

    Some Judges make simple things unnecessarily delayed. It is unfortunate of this country they need not be with any time sense. Our Judicial syst try to keep previous syst like maintaining watchman for telephone which rarely rings and enjoy the present.

    It is noticed that after staying the operation of order of lower courts, the appellate courts forget to finally dispose of the main case. Is there any judgment of the Apex court laying down time limit or according urgency in final decision.
