“There is a need for every judge to take the responsibility of disposing cases expeditiously,” he said and emphasised on the system of settling cases through discussion. He also said, “There is a need for judicial officers to participate in training and awareness programs.”

Emphasising the need for a robust district judicial system to dispose of such cases, Justice Surya Kant said very few people can travel to the constitutional bench therefore there is a need for well well-equipped district judicial system by way of imparting training and sensitisation programmes for judicial officers.

Chief Justice of the High Court of Tripura, Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh highlighted the thin pendency in the high court due to cooperation from lawyers who are meticulously and effectively taking up cases during the trial.
