Delhi High Court judge Justice Jayant Nath retired, said this about the leave of the courts


Justice Jayant Nath of the Delhi High Court retired on Tuesday. In his farewell function organized by the High Court, the Justice said that with the cases pending for a long time, the overburden of the courts is a known fact but the reason for the delay is not the courts alone. In his farewell address, Justice Nath advised lawyers to be ‘honest’ towards their profession and client and reminded that there is no ‘shortcut’ to success. Chief Justice DN Patel said Justice Nath was a distinguished judge. who will be remembered for their prestige and excellence. Justice Nath was appointed as an additional judge of the High Court in April 2013 and became a permanent judge on March 18, 2015.

He said the matter is pending despite “tireless efforts” by the courts and lawyers. “It is a known fact that courts are burdened with long pending cases. Unfortunately, a common man’s perception is to blame the court for the delay in disposal of cases. Much is said about going on court holidays, comparing it to school holidays. I can say with full confidence that this image is not right among the people.


Justice Jayant Nath has observed that public perception about going to courts on leave like schools is not correct and there should be a suitable mechanism with respect to ‘image change’ to reflect their hard work. “The reasons for the delay are many but in reality the courts are not responsible for them. All I can say is that the court needs to take some steps to convey this difficult and good work through a suitable mechanism. I don’t need to say more on this, but I think some change in the image would be useful.’
