Some people argue that when factories can produce items in 3 shifts each of 8 hours, many offices can work into 2 shifts, and many schools can operate in morning and evening then why courts cannot work in at least 2 shifts in morning and evening plus one mobille court so that at least two times of the cases could be cleared in comparison to todays cleared cases.
Government is well aware of these things but it must be having some constraints in appointing a large number of new judges and staff and sitting place for all of them.
As regards the lawyers, there is no shortage of them because we have a large batallion of unemployed people who have done their LLB but there is no job for them. So if there is a will there is a way and then only the mobile courts in the area mentioned by the author would be available.

Even this challenging situation would ease
The number of courts and the court staff are not in proportion to the population of India. The number of cases is more and the lawyers never wanted the case to get closed as that is their source of Income. To solve this problem more courts are to be established and courts should work in two shifts so that daily more cases can be addressed. Manpower should be increased so that cases will get finalised early.
The question is not about the type of court. The question is all about the functioning of these courts. The courts should be strict and award high degree punishments to the culprits so that people will have a fear of punishment and will never dare to go against the law with that fear of punishment.
I agree that the issue of pending cases can be solved to some extent by increasing the number of judicial officers and the court staff but still, I don't think speedy disposal of all the cases can be materialised as long as the procedures that are laid down has to be followed.

The Union Government did not respond so far. The Chief Justice of India is making many recommendations regarding good infrastructure to the courts. All his proposals are pending with the Union Government.
