Model Courts

What’s at Stake

The Model Courts were established by the National Judicial (Policy Making) Commission for the swift disposal of cases. In a country where several death sentences a year are overturned on appeal by the Supreme Court for miscarriage of justice, and that too from the regular trial courts, there is a risk that, in the process of swiftly disposing of cases, the quality of the justice dispensed at model courts may be compromised.

Current Status

PILAP wrote an RTI to the NJPMC asking how the quality of justice dispensed at the Model Courts is maintained.
