New Delhi, Apr 24 (UNI) In a move expected to ''reduce'' cases pending before subordinate judiciary, Union Cabinet approved this evening a fresh Bill on Gram Nyayalayas, it was announced tonight.
Gram Nyayalayas Bill 2008 will be introduced in Rajya Sabha in place of Gram Nyayalayas Bill 2007, which has been pending and would be withdrawn, an announcement said.
The new Bill follows the recommendations of the Parliamentary Standing committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice and the Law Ministers and Law Secretaries and Registrar Generals of High Courts Conference, it said.
It will reduce ''considerable number of pending cases in subordinate judiciary'' and result in a justice system which is ''less expensive, free from protracted procedural wrangles, quick and available at the gross-roots level.'' Such a system, the announcement said, would make justice accessible to ''the common man and render justice to him as enshrined in article 39A of the Constitution.'' UNI MJ PK GC2132
