Dear Sir,

This is with regard to the article published in “Bangalore Mirror” dated 06th August 2010. The said article is attached herewith for your kind reference.

As per this news Article Government of Karnataka is considering Weekend Courts and Evening Courts to give some relief to the litigants who are unable to attend the court as they are unable to take frequent leave in the office. This is one of the long pending demands of our NGO and we had given numerous petitions to your ministry. 

We sincerely thank you for the efforts taken by your ministry to reform the functioning of the Family Courts in Bangalore. We are happy to record our appreciation and specifically thank to you for the proactive initiatives taken to reforms of Family Court which will save the honor and life of the litigant couples. Though many of our demands are still pending and much needs to be done but we are confident that every single step regarding Family Court reforms will have a direct bearing on the personal lives of the litigants.

We take this opportunity to again express our deep appreciation to you and request to kindly consider our other list of proposals and suggestions apart from “Evening/Holiday/Morning Shifts”:

  • Additional 6 more family courts in addition to the existing 4 family courts should be opened without any further delay to cope up with the huge pendency.
  • The Family Courts shall ensure that all matrimonial cases be disposed within a period of Six months.
  • The Family Courts to officially suspend the practice of summer vacation to the benches till the time limit of Six months is met.
  • The Family Courts to officially state that no new cases to be taken till the old ones are disposed.
  • All long-pending (one year and above) cases should be transferred to the Fast Track Courts to dispose of within a time limit.
  • Family Court records must be computerized so that old cases can be disposed on a priority basis and cases can be tracked scientifically.
  • As there are overload on the court on a particular date and less-load on some dates hence the practice of giving dates in the open court must be stopped. Instead dates must be given by the computer section like in Supreme Court or judges should be given computer training and computers must be installed so that dates are given in a scientific way.
  • The tendency of one party to drag the cases to delay the proceeding must be dealt severely with heavy cost and other means.
  • Judges must be sensitized to the fact that they are dealing with the cases involving “Human life” that are driven by “emotional issues” in case of matrimonial issues which are very different from a criminal case.

Please save the family and thereby save our great Nation to retain India a “Vasudeva Kutumbaham”.

Jai Hind!!

With profound respects,

P Suresh, President,                                      M Mahesh
