    Fast track courts are meant to expeditiously clear the criminal and civil court cases pending in various district and subordinate courts throughout India in a time bound manner. As per the envisaged action plan, the fast track courts are required to dispose of 14 sessions trial cases and/or 20 to 25 criminal/civil cases every month.
    Generally the jurisdiction of such courts is defined and they can take up cases falling within their jurisdiction only. The exact opinion about the subject matter raised by the author can be known only through discussion with the lawyer concerned who is presently handling the case.
    However as a common man, I don't think that a two year old divorce case can be transferred to a fast track court.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
