Gauri Kashyap | 28th Apr 2022
We look at institution, disposal, pendency, strength of the Bench, and other factors that affected the Court in the last 10 years.
Pendency of cases at the SC has increased in 2021 by 7.3%. Currently 69,555 cases are pending.
The SC’s clearance rate dropped to its lowest in 33 years.
A majority of the SC’s time in 2021 was spent disposing of cases that did not involve a substantial question of law.
DESK BRIEF: The Supreme Court's backlog continues to rise as cases take longer to be disposed of
