Justice Delayed is Injustice

“Everything has been said already, but as no one listens, we must always begin again.” Andre Gide French thinker and writer.
The need for JUSTICE SYSTEM REFORMS can hardly be overemphasized. The system devised more than a century back, has become ineffective; a large number of guilty go unpunished in a large number of cases; the system takes years to bring the guilty to justice; and has ceased to deter criminals. Crime is increasing rapidly everyday and types of crimes are proliferating. The citizens live in constant fear. Several reports on JUSTICE SYSTEM REFORMS are gathering dust in the Archives of the Government. Particular reference may be made to the reports mentioned in succeeding paragraphs. It is high time a time-bound action plan is made and implemented with alacrity. The benefits that will accrue in terms of quality of national life will be immesurable.
Govt. of India, Ministry of Home Affairs constituted the Committee on reforms of Criminal Justice System to make a comprehensive examination of all the functionaries of the Criminal Justice System, the fundamental principles and the relevant laws. The Committee, having given its utmost consideration to the grave problems facing the country made its recommendations in its final report 12 years ago in March 2003. 158 specific recommendations were made.
