Indian courts are clogged with large backlogs. Part of the reason for the problem is that cases take a very long time to move through the courts. It slows progress of court cases is harmful for the Indian democracy and economy. It suggests that part of the reason for the backlog is the poor administrative support available to judges. Following several Supreme Court judgements, it proposes that a separate organisation. The Indian Courts and Tribunals Services, ICTS) be set up to facilitate administrative functions. Care needs to be taken while designing ICTS to ensure the protection of judicial independence. The functions of ICTS would also involve a reengineering of the business processes of the courts to take full advantage of modern technology.
