Is there any night Courts in India like medical Officers to attend to emergency night works, that is prevailing in some countries?
M. PIRAVI PERUMAL (Advocate & Consumer Rights) 05 February 2009
Sir, In the State of Tamil Nadu we dont have any such night Courts. In case of extreme urgency when the matter is represented to Registrar General in concurrence the CJI, the matter is taken up at the residence of the judges.

I agree to disagree with Mr. Perumal. I am aware that some night courts are functioning at the Egmore, GT and Saidapet Metropolitan Magistrate Court Complexes in Chennai. The timing is upto 8.30 Pm or 9.00pm
Thanks, Ramakrishnan, ADV

Considering the mountain of pending cases in the Country, it is high time for the Government of India to consider for starting with Night Courts through out the Country, as suggessted by some legal luminaries. The night Courts can take up emergency night works as well as pending cases

since last one and half , in our Gujarat every district has a one night court, at TALUKA LEVEL.
night court is constituted for the petty offences, prohibition cases, and other criminal matters.
night courts functions starts at 6.00pm and over at 8.00pm. Judicial magistrate first class is the presiding judge for the night courts.
night courts is quite suitable for pending cases and especially for cases related to compromise, and prohibition.
there is less posibility in our india, to M.O. attend the night courts.

Shift system to judiciary is a welcoming proposal. In all area there is night shifts. Like that the courts must function in night so that an extra team of judicial officers can take over the seat in the night nad can hear and decide the cases. The advocates also must work in night shifts. This can be made applicable in government services also. In outsourcing area in IT there are full time night shifts depends on the working houyrs at USA and UK. Then why can't we apply this to all fields. Coming to the present scenario I welcome and appreciate the idea of night courts.

So far, in SIKKIM, we dont have such Courts yet.
But in the wake of ever rising piles of files n volume of pending cases, the need of the hour demands Night Courts.
Indian Judiciary - is still performing today's tasks with tools of yesterday ; its high time they need a change.
I will raise this issue in our next Bar meeting.
