Double the number of courts and judges in the subordinate judiciary in a phased manner

Inadequate Progress

No considerable progress has been made with regard to doubling the number of courts and judges in sub-ordinate judiciary. The sanctioned strength of judges in district and sub-ordinate courts has increased from 19,726 to 21,374, an increase of mere 8% against the promise of 100%. Nearly 2.8 crore cases are pending in district and sub-courts.

Since there is only marginal improvement in number of judges, the performance against this promise has been classified as “Inadequate Progress”
