One of the biggest challenges for the economic development of India is huge pendency of cases in India courts and the consequential delayed disposal of cases. Because of the said delay in disposal of cases, Crores of money is held up in various courts of India. Even today the Indian business men are not able to believe that in case of a business dispute they can get justice through courts within a reasonable time. Foreign Investors and business men even though choose foreign seat of arbitration, they require a long time to enforce their awards in India soil. Young entrepreneurs become bankrupt if they end up in a business dispute because the case may take 10 to 20 years to get a final order. Hence the need of the hour is judicial reforms to strengthen economy. Even though there are many issues in this area the following are important points which require immediate consideration by the government:
- Need to multiply the number of judges in all levels including high court and supreme court of India and bring down the pendency of the courts to only one year
- Changes in judicial recruitment process
- Need to encourage arbitration in India
- Making judiciary self sufficient in terms of financial aspects(legal aid)
- Do we require expert judges and benches in the high court and supreme court of India?
- Can India become a international arbitration hub?
The deliberations at the Conference will serve as a game-changer and help authorities in addressing the apprehensions and issues raised by different stakeholders.
