Urgent need to reduce pleadings, set page limit, Supreme Court observes

The Supreme Court observed that it is urgent to reduce the pleadings or at least to limit the number of pages for them.

The Supreme Court observed that it is urgent to reduce the pleadings or at least to limit the number of pages for them.

During the hearing of a plea requesting a uniform procedure for the registration of cases and standard judicial warrants in all high courts, the Supreme Court observed that there was an urgent need to reduce the pleadings or limit their number. of pages.

“If you ask me, what needs to be done urgently is to reduce the pleadings,” Judge Ravindra Bhat said.

“We need to reduce the pleadings, our tendency to spill over rings and rings of pages, questions of law, motives, etc. We have to do it,” he said.

“Can we agree on a page limit in the future for speech therapists? The synopsis cannot exceed three paragraphs,” Judge Bhat noted.

The court was hearing a plea filed by Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay, asking for a uniform judicial code. The petition asked for instructions to have a uniform procedure for registering cases, to use common legal terms, expressions and abbreviations and to standardize court costs.

Lawyers appearing for the petitioner argued before a panel led by the CJI UU Lalit that even different panels of the same high court use different terminologies.

The court observed that this very issue had come to the attention of the chief justice’s conference about 13-14 years ago and that resolutions had been made, while some courts implemented it, others high courts refused to do so.

The court held that while it is nice to say that there must be uniformity, the court cannot make a court order ordering the same.

The bench allowed the petitioner to withdraw his plea and dismissed the petition as withdrawn.
