SC thwarted in its constitutional objective- I

  1. SC: The rush of humdrum commercial and private appeals had thwarted the Supreme Court’s constitutional objective to hear matters of only national and public interest
  2. Strength: Even an increase in the sanctioned strength of Supreme Court judges to 31 has not helped because they are busy hearing routine cases at the cost of pending constitutional matters
  3. Post 1990s phenomena: The judgment endorsed former Solicitor-General T.R. Andhyarujina’s view that the Supreme Court started losing its character after 1990, when it began entertaining cases of all kinds
  4. Context: SC is hearing a petition for setting up National Courts of Appeal with regional benches to hear civil and criminal appeals
