Hon'ble Mr. Justice E. Padhamnabhan deserves heartily thanks for submitting such a appreciable report well in time which is a mile stone for the Indian Judiciary for uprising its present status which will be great helpful for trial judges to impart justice with dignified life in better surroundings. At the same time it is expected from all Judicial Officers that they fully use their capacity and available facilities to impart SASTA, SULABH and TWARIT justice to the poor litigants who have to wait for the same for years.
It is also requested that the sumptuary allowance should be increased in case of principal district judges.
