NEW DELHI : A pilot project report by Delhi high court on backlog of cases has found that the national capital required 43 more judges above the current 143 to clear all pending cases in one year. Called the ‘zero pendency courts project’, it is one-of-its-kind project in India aimed at studying the life cycle of cases and to come up with ideal timelines for disposal of the cases.
