SC to start daily specialist tax & criminal benches after Holi

To address the backlog of pending cases relating to criminal and taxation matters, the Supreme Court has set up two benches to exclusively hear them on a daily basis when the court resumes work after the Holi break on 9 March, it was announced Monday.

Apex court registrar MK Hanjura Monday said that there were 11,137 criminal cases and 10,843 cases relating to taxation pending before the court.

The move is in pursuance to Chief Justice HL Dattu’s initiative to reduce the pendency of cases by employing the existing strength and roster of judges.
