CHANDIGARH, May 11

In six months, you may be able to your premises vacated from your tenant on the ground of personal necessity. Decade old cases will be decided in three months.
For, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today issued a slew of directions for cutting down the delay in the disposal of cases. Justice SD Anand ruled: Every petition based upon an averment of personal necessity or a petition filed by a specified landlord would be disposed of within six months of the filing thereof. For expeditious disposal, the judicial courts shall have to accord noticeable and compulsive priority to those cases.
"More than 10-year old cases shall be positively wiped out within 3 months from the cut - off date that is May 14. For that expeditious disposal, the courts would be entitled to prepone the date of hearing after notifying the parties opposite."
"Over five year -old cases shall be completely annihilated upon within six months from the cut off date that is May 14. It will be the administrative responsibility of the district judge to monitor the progress of this type of cases, wherever those are pending, by resorting to whatever methology they may like to adopt in their own discretion. Quality of supervision would be a part of their administrative acumen, which they are expected to display."
For monitoring the progress, Justice Anand ordered Punjab Registrar(Vigilance) would be the nodal officer for the entire state of Punjab and also the Union Territory. Similarly, Haryana Registrar (Vigilance) would be the nodal officer for the entire state of Haryana.
The nodal officers shall be entitled to oversee the progress of these cases on the administrative side and furnish a report in the relevant behalf by the seventh of every month. Their responsibility in this behalf would be an exercise in continuity till further orders of the court on the judicial side. "
Justice Anand added," The current are trying and prying times for our instituion, which is the constitutionally announced sentinel of justice.The former expression has been used to signify that our institution has to redeem itself by annihilating the old pendency particularly in a scenario where certain quarters are even endeavouring a resort to RTI for finding out the causes of delay.
"We have to evolve our own in-system mechanism to take care of the malaise of large pendency. It can also be done by prioritising the pendency."
