PARKINSON'S LAW---quote from observation of an eminent jurist

delay in civil litigation---"To my mind ,the solution is very simple.see that the men you appoint are of proper ones.Find Judges with an alert and active mind  what is more important , Pay the Judges better,give them betterpension and enforce better conditions of service.The usual solution put forward is to  increase the number of Judges.But if the men selected are not really competent ,Parkinson's law willcome into playt.he more the Judges ,the greater will be the load of work"

Even Arbitration is going same way !

Delay in civil litigation can be curbed with some procedural changes in law. It should start within lawyers oriented  system of fixing next date. the fudal concept of judge giving the dates at his discretion whims and fancies. should stop. computerissation of the entire court admisnistration shall be most useful to achieve the same. The  computers in the courts can records each and every appointment of the advocates appearing in the matter at glance and then with consensus of the advocates appearing in the matter  a date along with fixed time to appear in the matter can be alloted. No adjournments then unless for any extraneous circumstances

          your sugessions are true above truth.lawmakers must be informed about the subject matter as assessed and advised by a sr practising advocate.further change of civil code is a n absolute necessity with its present perspectives.

 Sirf adjournment application per Rs 100/- ka tickat krado. Sab asaan ho jayega. Lekin ek bat dhyan me rahe. 'Court busy in part heard matters' ke bare me kya kiya jaye.

Make it compulsory that before hearing stage, wrtitten arguments alongwith citations will be filed.

All steps should be time bound.

All opportunities should be limited to 3, with a minimum of 15 days between each date.
