BANGALURU : DAKSH, a non-profit organisation, has launched a new comprehensive website, ‘Rule of Law Project’, which will throw light on pendency and backlog of cases in Indian courts. It will help understand the delays in judicial systems better.
Harish Narasappa, co-founder of DAKSH, said, “The website is basically about data crunching. On our website, one can look at the number of cases pending in high courts and lower courts.”
The website offers details on the number of cases pending in high courts and analyses of the cases across 18 high courts.
From the available data, one can look at the average time of disposal and status of the cases.
The data is already available in public domain,
but the website has compiled it in a scientific manner for better analogy, he added.
“We are also updating the cases by penal codes,” said Kishore Mandyam, co-founder of DAKSH. Cases listed under penal codes will help in looking at the problem in a larger context.
The founders are also collaborating with National Law schools and academics and are in talks with IIMs so
get the management perspective.
