THE NEW system of listing cases for hearing devised by the Supreme Court with focus on clearing the backlog appears to be creating time issues for some of its judges.
On Tuesday, a bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Abhay S Oka put its concern on record.
“The new listing systemis not giving an adequate time to take up matters fixed for hearing like the present case as there are number of matters within the span of ‘Afternoon’ session,” the bench said in its order.
The court was hearing an appeal against an Allahabad High Court order refusing to quash an FIR.Most Read 1 Gadar 2 box office collection day 4: Sunny Deol film records biggest Monday collections of all time, nets a total of Rs 173 cr 2 Bigg Boss OTT 2 Finale Live Updates: Elvish Yadav wins Salman Khan’s show, Abhishek Malhan shares message from hospital 3 Happy Independence Day 2023: Wishes Images, Whatsapp Messages, Status, Quotes, and Photos 4 OMG 2 box office collection day 4: Pankaj Tripathi-Akshay Kumar film delivers better Monday than opening Friday, earns Rs 55.1 cr 5 Jailer box office collection Day 5: Rajinikanth film set to cross Rs 350-crore mark worldwide on Independence Day
The Supreme Court had put in a new system of listing cases recently after Chief Justice of India U U Lalit assumed office.
As per this, miscellaneous matters are taken up on Mondays and Fridays and post-lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The change was seen as an attempt by CJI Lalit to reduce the rising backlog and ensure faster listing of fresh matters. A full court meeting held on August 27 had discussed the issue of listing.Also ReadNarendra Modi Independence Day Speech Live Updates: India now identified ...Govt SOP for Judges: Do not name officials for court panelsShivaji statue vandalised in Goa, police initiate inquiryChhattisgarh: 5 years after local news anchor went missing, her partner h...
