Gauhati High Court will soon get Justice Clocks along with the rest of the high courts in the country.
The Centre has decided to install these Justice Clocks with LED message displayed on the screens, in all 24 high courts of India to show the daily rate of disposal of cases.
The clocks will also display the number of pending cases and the individual rank of each of these courts.
The idea of ‘justice clock’ was floated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last year. The initiative was undertaken to create public awareness in judicial matters.
The aim is also to create a competition among the courts and also rank them according to performance, in terms of disposal of cases.
A model of this ‘clock’ was first installed in the New Delhi office of the Justice Department.
According to sources, there are also plans to install the ‘clock’ in all the subordinate courts of the nation.
