With a view to enhance the efficiency of court management and resultant improvement in case disposal, Government has allocated Rs. 300 crore to the States for creation of posts of professionally qualified Court Managers, on the recommendation of 13th Finance Commission. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Dr. Ashwani Kumar, Minister of Law & Justice, said that one Court Manager would be provided to assist judges in each Judicial District, two in each High Court and one for each Bench of the High Court.
The Court Managers would provide support to judges and assist them in performing their administrative duties. This would allow more time to judges for performing the judicial functions and would, thus, enable disposal of pending cases to the benefit of the litigants.
