The Union government and, indeed, all state governments should replicate the idea of LIMBS
Court time is precious. For civil cases, why should the government crowd out the private citizen from the court system by preempting court time? Why should two government departments or two PSUs fight it out in courts?
You may have come across similar figures earlier. 60-65% of civil cases involve the government as a litigant, sometimes on both sides. 95% of government appeals fail and so on.
These account for more than 70% of cases. Most cases are in tribunals, followed by high courts. Among high courts, most cases are filed in Delhi, UP, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and West Bengal High Courts. An average case takes eight years and 41,605 cases have been pending for more than ten years.
