The Law Ministry’s Department of Justice discussed ways by which pendency of cases can be reduced in a meeting held on Monday.

During the course of the meeting, a number of interesting facts and figures were revealed. For starters, the government admitted that the Centre and the states were responsible for over 46% of the 3 plus crore cases pending across courts in the country.

The central government alone is a party in 1,35,060 cases, as per statistics provided by the Legal Information Management and Briefing System (LIMBS). The LIMBS website was launched last year with a view to helping government departments keep a track of the pending cases they are involved in.

The Ministry of Railways is the major defaulter, with 66,685 pending cases, of which 10,464 are over ten years old.
