Justice at the doorstep --article by sudha raje

Justice At The
Doorstep
- by Sudha Raje
Since I started advocacy from 1993 , I had always been spreading
awareness among my clients and others, and had the opinion : The main
problem of the Indian democracy, which is the main source of disorder
in the society is the centralization of institutions. The advanced
levels of jurisdictory institutions are centralized, leading to much
discomfort and troubles for the people. For instance, a person wanting
to appeal in high court have trouble doing so due to its inaccesibilty
i.e. very much long distances. Most of the common people, in the fear
of disrupting their routine, do not approach the jurisdiction. The
state high courts, are located far away from some regions of the state
that a person can not up-down directly to the hearing and reach back
home just in one day. Such traveling usually takes three to four days
and thus is nearly inaccessible to the people who have just one
earning member in the family. Also the people who already have a case
at the court have to wait for long intervals of time, due to very high
number of cases already filed there, delaying the process further.
Moreover the convicts have to be transported for the hearing rendering
them either able to escape or hazarding their lives.
If the state high court is decentralized into branches at district
level or provinces and the session courts at tehsil level, then the
same person will be more at ease and will be able to participate
actively in the jurisdiction process. The process will be much more
accurate, time and energy efficient. The victims and witnesses will be
also at a safe up-downable distances from their home and more secure
and safe. The convicts have lesser chance of escaping and lesser
machinary will be involved, where only a score or two of the staff
will have to travel to the branches, it will be major relief to lacs
of people..The second step of improvement in the process of
jurisdiction would be the availability of justice to people in their
own language which I will dicuss in later articles, where The Indian
Law and Constition and all its literature is dominated by English,
demanding a complete translation in other Indian languages.
