Shortage of Judges

Per two lac of people, there are less than two judges in proportion, to be precise, however, as per the data submitted by the Law Ministry, the country has 19 judges on an average for every 10 lac people. In other words, the judiciary, as on date, faces a combined shortage of 6160 judges. Assuming hypothetically that all the vacancies are filled up so as to have nil shortage therein, would justice delivery system pick up the desired momentum and have cases disposed of within a reasonable time?
The fingers can but be put crossed with this assertion that unless reforms in our judicial system were introduced in consonance with the changing times and to build more trust in our judicial system , nothing worthwhile was going to happen except , of course, some minor improvement in the situation. Avalanche of litigation, reasons thereof, agreeably cannot be shifted on the judiciary but judiciary cannot wash its hands too in entirety. It is absolutely stunning to find that there are nearly three crore cases pending in District and subordinate courts in the country. The maxim of walking an extra mile or putting in a bit more, would wipe out the menace of pendency of so many cases for final disposal for years at a stretch. The question is how to walk on the challenging narrow path of devotion and duty.
Getting justice, on the other hand, has become costlier and the litigants mostly from rural and semi urban areas are the worst sufferers. In most of the cases, justice is delayed to the extent of being denied. The Government must clarify for how long and why such a huge gap of the requirement and the availability of the judicial officers has been allowed to widen and by what time the vacancies are expected to be filled up.
