Matter Is in the Court, Incompetence Is the Main Reason
Judicial delays garrote justice. A civil case filed in Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1833 is still hanging fire. India has the record of having witnessed a longest contested lawsuit according to the Guinness Book Of World Records. In Pune, on 28th April 1966, Balasaheb Patloji Thorat received a favourable judgment in a suit filed by his ancestor Maloji Thorat 761 years earlier in 1205 CE. Reasons behind the unconscionable delays have been discussed in detail. It is curable provided there is a will and honesty to do it.
