Time has come to think of providing a forum for the poor and needy people who approached the law courts to redress their grievance speedily. However, the delay in disposal of cases in law court, for whatever reason it may be, has really defeated the purpose for which the people approach the courts for their redressal. Justice delayed is justice denied and at the same time justice hurried is justice buried. So, one has to find out a via media between these two to render social justice to the poor and needy who want to seek their grievance redressed through Law Courts.

The Constitutional promise of securing to all its citizens justice - social, economic and political as promised in the Preamble of the Constitution cannot be realised unless the three organs of the State i.e. legislature, executive and judiciary join together to find ways and means for providing to the Indian poor equal access to its justice system.

The judiciary has tried to do this through Public Interest Litigation movement, but this movement has now lost much of its momentum. The executive is balking at enforcing the courts’ orders in Public Interest Litigation cases. The persons undertaking PIL cases are misusing the opportunity provided or they are not able to fully utilise the opportunity.
