Gujarat High Court expresses displeasure over an "ejectment suit" pending before a civil court in Rajkot for nearly 30 years.

"This isn't how an ejectment suit can be kept pending. People will lose confidence in courts," Chief Justice Aravind Kumar remarked.

Adv Moon Shah appearing in the matter informs the Bench that several matters are pending before various civil courts for 30 years and beyond.

Shah: The problem is with the system.

CJ: Not the system. It is with the person, who manages the system. Suppose in a case... adv seeks adjournment fir cross-examination the judge can give time but if adv seeks adjournment on 10 occassions, the judge here must impose heavy costs.

Shah: Even workload is an issue.

CJ: In last six months of my monitoring, I can say out of 178 criminal cases pending for over 40 years before trial courts, around 150 have been disposed of. This is because of intervention by Administrative judges.

Shah: Sometimes, there is a very pitiable condition (of litigants).

CJ: We will set right the pitiable condition don't worry.
