Andhra Pradesh High Court Chief Justice Kalyan Jyoti Sengupta has underlined the need for improving the infrastructure in the courts, observing that lack of required number of courts as the reason for the increase in pending cases.

Speaking at the inauguration of the 11th district additional sessions court at Piler town on Sunday, he admitted that the number of existing courts in the state is not on par with the population of the state.

Reiterating that all the vacancies in the courts will be filled within 3 to 4 months, he also hinted at sanctioning additional posts in courts to ensure effective functioning and also wanted the advocates to strive for bringing down the number of pending cases.

High Court judge NV Ramana, district portfolio and High Court judge KC Bhanu, district principal judge L Ravi Babu, Chittoor SP Kanti Rana Tata and others were also present.

Sengupta, along with his family members, offered prayers at the hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara on Sunday morning. Sengupta was received with temple honours at the main entrance of the temple before having a darshan of the Lord. One of the temple priests, Dr AV Ramana Dikshitulu, explained to the Chief Justice and his entourage about the Lord and the ornaments.
