- People are self-centred. If two men begin to fight each other they don't interfere and settle their disputes. As a result, either or both parties rush to the police station.
- We don't have a local unofficial community court that may settle their disputes.
- We don't have the Lok Adalat system in our society
- In the old day's village panchayat were very effective and all villagers would abide by their decision.
- Now almost everybody has wealth and they don't have any fear of law because they can give a bribe, so they move to fight against their opposite party/group/individuals
- Police don't settle their disputes, sometimes some policemen create criminals or enmesh innocent people.
- Police is not an autonomous body as in the US is. In the US police don't arrest the accused until the case is fully investigated and their evidence is accepted in the court unlike in our country.
- Scarcity of a considerable number of judges compared to a huge number of cases.
- Number of fake cases is much higher.
- Undue control of politicians over the police department and society.

Even this challenging situation would ease
As the population is very high, there may be many cases filed in the courts and to study the case completely, the judge may require a lot of time. So they try to take more and more time. Some actions are required from the department to come out of this problem. The working hours of courts to be increased. If necessary, the courts should work in shifts. As required staff is to be increased. Fast track courts are to be established and many cases that are not very serious should be disposed of immediately and the number of cases should get reduced.
Some cases which are finalised at lower courts are again coming to higher courts. There should be a check on that Instead of postponing the cases every day there should be a target to clear some cases so that the cases will not get piled up.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
