About the BookThis book is a unique effort of the author to expose the anomalies prevailing in the judiciary. In fact, the highly appalling issue—justice in time—has long been a matter of great concern not only for the people of India, but of the entire Third World. The author has put in hard labour in compiling this work which is largely based on his research of last fifteen years. It not only analyses a number of vital issues pertaining to the judicial system in India but also suggests measures to make justice time bound.
The book highlights the need for making judiciary prompt and responsive by fulfilling the 40,000 vacancies of judicial officers lying vacant for sometime. It will on the one hand purge the judicial machinery from avoidable delays and on the other make justice delivery system faster and more accurate within given framework of time. This work is a bold and daring attempt of the author on the very timely and urgent issue of delayed justice.
Author’s debate over issues such as how to lodge an FIR, creation of a judicial commission, imposition of consequential punishment to the guilty and giving adequate compensation to the aggrieved party are some of the novel ideas to improve the justice delivery system of the country.
The book will be highly useful for those who have interest in judiciary and justice delivery system of the country. It will help them in knowing about present state of affairs in judiciary.About the Author/sAnand S. Mittal, born in a small town of western Uttar Pradesh in 1948, studied Law and Political Science.
