Delhi courts to fast track pending cases involving disabled and elderly people

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Delhi High Court has issued an order to all trial court judges to have a ‘special focus’ on cases involving people with disabilities, senior citizens, minors and other marginalised groups and dispose of these cases at the earliest. This comes as a part of the campaign, 'Five-plus free', that aims to dispose of cases pending for more than five years by the end of this year.

The High Court has provided for a mechanism for the trial courts to segregate cases of the target groups from that of other old cases. A separate database for the disposal of these cases will have to be maintained. The High Court has asked the trial courts to file their progress report by January 20 next year.
