Don't want SC to become Taarikh-pe-Taarikh court: CJI

NEW DELHI: Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud on Friday asked the lawyers to seek adjournments of hearing in listed cases only when it is very necessary, as "We don't want this court to be a Taarikh-pe-Taarikh court".

He said frequent adjournments defeated trust of citizens reposed in the top court of the country.

Before start of the proceedings, the CJI said as many as 3688 adjournment slips were circulated by the lawyers in last two months between September and October, 2023.

In his remarks, the CJI said, "I have one request. There are 178 adjournment slips today. On an average per miscellaneous day from September 1 and 3, 154 adjournments are circulated. A total of 3688 adjournments were circulated in two months."

The figures speak for themselves, this defeated the purpose of filing and listing, he said.

A total of 2361 matters have been mentioned since September, 2023, 59 matters are being mentioned on an average every day, he said.

On the one hand matters are listed on expedited basis, on the other hand, they are mentioned, then they get listed and then they are adjourned, he said.

"I request the members of the bar to not seek adjournments unless really really necessary. This cannot become a Tareekh-pe-Tareekh court. This defeats trust of citizens in our court," the CJI said.

He also stressed that the Supreme Court has taken efforts to fix hearings of fresh matters within days of filing.
