CJI Chandrachud told why judges of lower courts hesitate to grant bail

Supreme Court CJI: The entire focus of CJI DY Chandrachud is on giving justice to the people in less time. Like his predecessor Justice UU Lalit, he is trying his best to reduce the increasing burden of pending cases in the Supreme Court. CJI Chandrachud has recently found a way to clear 70,000 pending cases daily. He has made a rule that now every day 10-10 bail petitions and 10-10 transfer cases will be listed in front of all the 13 benches of the Supreme Court.

The CJI said, “The high courts are flooded with bail petitions because of the denial of bail by the lower courts. Judges of lower courts hesitate to grant bail. It is not that they do not understand the matters, rather they are afraid of being targeted by granting bail in heinous crimes. CJI Chandrachud said these things at the felicitation ceremony organized by the Delhi Bar Council of India. Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju also participated in this program.

CJI serious about pending case

Earlier, CJI Chandrachud has made it a rule to hear 10-10 bail petitions and 10-10 transfer cases daily in every bench of the Supreme Court. Due to this, 130-130 cases related to bail and case transfer will be heard in the Supreme Court every day. 650-650 pending cases will be heard in a single week. This will reduce the pending cases in the Supreme Court.

Easy way to settle pending case

He had said that more than 3,000 petitions seeking transfer of cases from one state to another are pending. Most of these are related to marriage disputes. He had said that if every bench would hear 650 cases in a week, then all these cases would be heard in a year. With this, it will be easy to settle the pending cases and there will be no problem in getting justice to the people.

Former CJI also did the same thing

Please tell that former CJI UU Lalit also used to insist to settle the pending case. In his short tenure of 74 days as Chief Justice, he had made many rules to settle pending cases. He had increased the number of cases for hearing everyday. However, due to this, the workload of the judges was very heavy. The bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kaul had even said on September 13 that this rule is not giving time to hear new cases.
