Taking note of the rising number of cases in the Gurgaon district court, the Punjab and Haryana high court has decided to build a state-of-the-art court complex adjoining the existing court.
The new court is likely to reduce the number of pending cases in the district. It will house 10 rooms, while the district court has 17 rooms.
SS Oberoi, a legal expert who practises in the district court, said, "We normally get dates at a gap of six to nine months."
Though after the high court ordered to dispose of old cases quickly, the pendency rate has reduced, said Ram Nand Yadav, a lawyer in Gurgaon.
"All five-year-old cases are tagged green, while the seven-year-old ones bear a red tag. These tagged files are normally given dates at shorter intervals, so that they can reach the verdict soon," he said.
