PIL's ARE NOT GETTING SPACE IN CAUSE LIST AND MANY NOT LISTED FOR MORE THAN SIX MONTHS. AFTER MENTIONING 3 WEEKS DATES ARE RECEIVED BUT NOT CONFIRMED FOR LISTING.
Mumbai: Since the departure of CJ Smt Manjula Chellur the Public Interest Litigations are getting most suffered. In her tenure she was listening PIL's on every thursday and friday of week. Due to this every PIL get listed on board and heard.
After her retirement the PIL's are got distributed to other division benches of Bombay High Court. As per different acts the cases are allotted to many division benches. Inspite of this gentle action by Acting Chief Justice the PIL's are not reaching on board and respondents are taking this as advantage. Many division benches have PIL's on bottom of the priority list. Subject of Education has been more affected . Honorable Justice Dharmadhikari's supplement board is never finished and PIL's and other main matters are unable to reach. His bench is overburden and only 20-25 matters are able to reach but more than 150 matters are getting listed on daily basis. Things are little better with Justice More and Shri Naresh Patil. But in overall scenario PIL's are badly affected at Bombay high Court.
Due to interest in large and delay causing hurt to nation a social activist requested to Honorable Acting CJ to give direction to all division benches to allot single day in week of PIL's. As 10 days has been passed no such directions may has been noticed by peoples at Bombay high Court.
