Katihar, Oct 27: Bihar Panchayati Raj Minister Hari Prasad Sah on Monday, Oct 27 said the state government was committed to strengthening of Gram Kachehri 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 the concerned Gram Kachehri for its early disposal.
Handing over such cases to Gram Kachehri 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 Kachehri secretaries, Mr Sah said, adding that the state government had already allocated Rs 45 crore for disbursement of stipends to them.
