India's hidden judicial challenge: When will the oldest case awaiting disposal find closure?

debates on improving the judicial system. Meanwhile, pendency has now increased to around 5 crore cases. Hence, simply reiterating the same rhetoric does not effectively address the issue at hand.

The case of Balram Kashyap v. Bhagirathi Ganju serves as a stark reminder of the need to prioritize judicial reform. It is imperative to address the systemic issues that contribute to pendency, such as inadequate infrastructure, shortage of judges, inefficient case management and outdated procedural laws.
