That depends how it is handling. The delay and over crowding of cases can be settled by plea bargaining  A 21 century compounding.

I agree with K.C.Suresh and  it is also tool  to save  rich man.

What ever the draw back is but plea bargaining if properly used it could help in reducing burden of courts and could help in disposing minor offences with compensation to the victim.

Plea Bargaining  [chapter XXIA] is inserted by Act of 2006 w.e.f .05/07/2006.

It depends  how its handling by courts of laws. In my opnion it certainly saved time of couts and accused. It will help for our judiciary. Think possitively .

law/Act itself are intended for the good but its gooness depends upon the person who uses it. Each and every law/rule is in the same line including plea bargain.

         I think ,Plea of bargaining is a reformative social lgislation. Which may curtail the work load of courts and saves the society also, in the sence that' If every offender for such a crime which was done by him in a sudden anger and whim, is thrown behind the bar. His mentality surely be turned in to criminal in jail. Altogether he may keep always ill will and enimosity for the repoter throught the life. If he is given the benifit of plea of bargaining all these things may be curved. It is to be noted that grevious offence such as muder and rape have been kept beyond the ambit of plea of bargaining. Mr Adinath and Raj kumar Sir are right.

Our courts have followed the British legacy and failed to be pro-active towards the growing population and economy with resultant increase in litigation.  It is a shame virtually no dispute gets settled in a year or two. Now the judiciary crying wolf about over load. Our judicial system failed in all fronts in terms of delivery time, quality and perfection; besides all pervading corruption at staff level.  Now the only option is to adopt adhoc measure like plea bargain etc. Now criminals can wash their their crimes with money. Already wise men avoid courts and suffer injustice silently and the plea bargain provides legal sanction.
