COIMBATORE: The Madras High Court has disposed a record number of cases, Chief Justice Munishwar Nath Bhandari said here on Thursday.
After the pandemic and his taking over as Chief Justice, the High Court has disposed 109 per cent of cases, which has now gone up to 121 per cent, Bhandari said while inaugurating a Judiciary Guest House here.
It is not only High Court but subordinate judiciary has disposed of many cases, he said, adding that this was achieved despite the shortage of judges in courts.
To prove his point, Bhandari said that assuming that one lakh cases were filed in a month or a year, the court could dispose of 1.09 lakh cases, percentage wise it would be 109 per cent.
The Chief Justice appreciated the State government, Chief Minister, Chief Secretary, Finance and Law Minister for their support and allocating necessary building, lands and funds for development of infrastructure needed for judiciary.
State Finance Minister Palanivel Thiagarajan, Law Minister Raghupathy, senior judges and officials were present at the inauguration.
