View on page ‘Justice Clocks’ to start ticking in all HCs soon

The Centre will soon install ‘Justice Clocks’ —LED message display boards—in all 24 high courts to show the daily rate of disposal of cases, the number of pending cases and individual rank of each of these courts.

The idea, floated by PM Narendra Modi last year to create public awareness in judicial matters, will be implemented later in all subordinate courts.

The aim is also to create competition among the courts and rank them according to performance when it comes to disposal of cases. A model of this ‘clock’ was first installed in the Delhi office of the law ministry’s justice department last year.
