Working on system for automatic listing of cases in four days: CJI

New Delhi, Jan 23: Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday said the Supreme Court is devising a mechanism to do away with the process of mentioning pleas and would ensure automatic listing of a fresh case for hearing within four days of the filing.
Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said that if a matter cannot wait for four days, then lawyers can mention their petitions for urgent listing before the Apex Court registrar.
“We are working on a system in which a matter after filing automatically comes up for hearing within four days. If the matter can’t wait for four days then you (lawyers) all can mention your case before the registrar for urgent listing. Then we will look into the petition. We are working on that system,” the CJI said.
The remarks of CJI Gogoi came after a lawyer mentioned the matter for urgent listing before a bench, also comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and Sanjiv Khanna, saying that it has been over three days but his case has not been listed.
