It takes up to 60 years to dispose of a civil case!

“Expressing disappointment over the long delay in case disposal and huge backlog of pending cases, Law Minister Anisul Huq yesterday said sometimes around 60 years’ time is needed for final disposal of a civil case at present.
The government has undertaken a project of a cost of Tk 2,200 crore for establishing e-judiciary in the country, he said, adding that around 3.5 lakh litigants have been given relief through virtual courts during the pandemic.
He said people want justice in a short time and the judges must work to fulfill their desire.
He also said the government will take all possible steps including use of Alternative Dispute Resolution for reducing the backlogs.”
