    Today judiciary is at its lowest level in society with lakhs of pending cases. “Justice delayed is Justice denied” dictum is not applicable in India? Litigants who seek quick justice are punished and some of them die while the respondent do not even appear in the court. They just get adjournments and the person who went to court regularly attends obtaining leave from his work indefinably. It is time that the judiciary is brought under some discipline with rules and regulations with strict supervision. Judicial wrought has already become cancer and needs drastic surgery? To day in all civil litigation the Goondas & Mafias deliver immediate justice with their illegal method. They seem to be a better judiciary?
