Our Judicial System Is Way too much Slow criminals are enjoying these benefits

girls or women in our country are not safe because they know that our judicial system is too much slow to give them justice.

because they know that their rapist or harassers either get out of jail in bail or even worst they serve only 1-2 years in jail after they are free to do whatever they want to do(or the case would take 15 years to solve).

why our country does not have a judicial system like America such as trial by jury for faster disposal of cases and why are we still using pen and paper in Indian judicial system even after having a great generation of software engineers in our country.

I have written PM Modi a letter about this issue but no action is taken for protecting women in our country or to faster our criminal procedure system.

Talk about digital India, faster payment is useless until we make our judiciary in India faster by tech or by other methods.

the system is that bad that common man is afraid to go into the courts to get justice because they know that it is painfully too slow and does not even worth it

big business from places like the US don't want to come to India because they know that in India time taken by HC or lower courts are just too much even people in India are afraid that if they start a business they will have to face this court issue that's why fewer people start their business in India.

my country India is a great place we need to do something about our overcrowded justice system please help me to change this by signing this petition  This Article from economics times says it correctly -

As of September 30, 2016, the Supreme Court has nearly 61,000 pending cases, official figures say. The high courts have a backlog of more than 40 lakh cases, and all subordinate courts together are yet to dispose of around 2.85 crore cases.

At all three levels, courts dispose of fewer cases than are filed. The number of pending cases keeps growing, litigants face even dimmer prospects of their cases being disposed of quickly.

This is the trend across the country. In high courts, 94 per cent of cases have been pending for 5-15 years. In Allahabad, the country's largest and by many accounts, an inefficient court, 925,084 cases are pending.

On average, cases take three years and nine months to get disposed.In Delhi HC, considered publicly as one of the best, 66,281 are pending. It takes an average of two years and eight months to give its verdict in a case.

to be fair, delays are not a peculiarly Indian phenomenon. Many advanced countries struggle to provide quick, high-quality justice to citizens. But in India the scale of the problem is unprecedented.

Focusing on capacity alone won't reduce delays. A pervasive reason for delays is adjournments. A study by the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy (VCLP) conducted on Delhi HC found that in 91 per cent of cases delayed over two years, adjournments were sought and granted.

An initiative by VCLP -Justice, Access and Lowering Delays in India (Jal di) -seeks to address the problem. It talks of reducing government litigation, compulsory use of mediation and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. It mentions simplifying procedures, recommending precise capacity reinforcements and use of technology. The goal is to find a way to clear all backlog in the courts within six years.

This isn't unrealistic. In Singapore, the implementation of similar reforms in the 1990s led to astonishing results, 95 per cent of civil and 99 per cent of criminal cases were disposed of in 1999.

The average length of commercial cases fell from around six years in the 1980s to 1.25 years in 2000. The pending cases count hasn't grown substantially since.

While implementing such, reforms will present challenges, it is critical that the public narrative around delays changes. Delay in courts is not an HR issue -it is a question of the growth of a culture that has made delays acceptable. It impacts our ease of doing business rankings and hinders access to justice to the mazdoor whose employment has been unlawfully terminated.

Scarcely has there been an issue that cries out louder for the government and the judiciary to secure the constitutional mandate of speedy and effective access to justice.
