Need for an intermediate court of appeal between the High Courts and the Supreme Court in each of the four regions of the country: Attorney General KK Venugopal

[ by Legal Era News Network ]


According to Attorney General of India KK Venugopal there should be an intermediate court of appeal between the High Courts and the Supreme Court in each of the four regions of the country. This concern comes as a result of the long pending civil and criminal appeals in the courts.

Venugopal said that there should be distinct judges constituting the court of appeal and the Collegium system of the Apex Court should be the basis of their appointments. Venugopal said that the court of appeal should not be allowed to run like the appellate court. He further said that “We cannot possibly allow it to be an ordinary routine court of appeal like any other appellate courts.”

Venugopal further noted that no further appeal shall lie other than the review at the same court. The judges at the Supreme Court will not have to burn the midnight oil in dealing with these cases thereby lessening the burden of the lawyers and the judges. He said “The Supreme Court will have pendency of only two years and pendency of cases in the court of appeal will also be of only for two years.”

According to him, the government and the judges have failed in ensuring expeditious delivery of justice.
