We have only 11 benches and thousand new cases are filed in a week, give us a solution : CJI

On Friday morning, while addressing an advocate making a ‘mention’, he remarked, “a thousand new cases are filed every week. We have 11 benches as of now which hear 40 cases each on Mondays and Fridays. So 440 fresh matters each are being heard every Monday and Friday- 880 new cases in a week. Give us a solution? Which are the 120 items which we should delete? If there were 13-14 benches, we could hear all”.

He reiterated that efforts are on to decrease the time span between the registration of a case and the date when it comes up on the docket.
