Employing Court Managers to Assist Judges in Performing Administrative Duties

An amount of Rs. 5,000 crore has been allocated on the recommendation of Thirteenth Finance Commission for five years from 2010-11 to 2014-15 for various initiatives to improve justice delivery system. Out of this, an amount of Rs. 300 crore has been allocated for employment of professionally qualified Court Managers to assist the judges with a view to enhancing efficiency of court management and resultant improvement in case disposal. The Court Managers will support the judges in performing administrative duties, thereby enabling the judges to devote more time to judicial functions. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha, Shri Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice said that the post of Court Manager is proposed to be created in each judicial district to assist the Principal District and Sessions judges. Two posts of Court Manager are proposed to be created for each High Court and one for each Bench of the High Court. In case the High Court is of the opinion that one Court Manager would be sufficient for more than one district, High Level Monitoring Committee of the State can take a decision accordingly. An amount of Rs. 80.54 crore has already been released to States for this purpose.
