Katihar, Oct 27 (UNI) Bihar Panchayti Raj Minister Hari Prasad Sah today said the state government was committed to ensure strengthening of Gram Kachahari for delivery of speedy justice at ground level.
Mr Sah told reporters here that the state government would soon change the rules relating to Panchayati Raj system for disposal of all the related disputes at local level without loss of precious time.
''If the justice is delivered late, its very purpose gets defeated,'' he said, adding that the state government was serious in taking steps for quick disposal of the pending cases.
He said the state government had issued instructions to all district superintendents to refer petty cases to concerned Gram Kachahari for its early disposal.
Handing over such cases to Gram Kachahari would not only help in checking the crimes, it would also considerably decrease the work pressure on security personnel, he observed.
As a follow-up to its committment for strengthening the judicial system at Panchayati Raj level, the state government had already appointed 4,941 Nyay-mitras and 4,105 Kachahari secretaries, Mr Sah said, adding that the state government had already allocated Rs 45 crore for disbursement of stipends to them.
