We citizens of India are very disturbed by the delay of judicial matters in the Indian court system. It is unheard of in any civilized society that a case can drag on for twenty or more years without a final verdict or implementation of the verdict. We strongly believe that justice delayed is justice denied. From the upper rungs of Indian society to the lower strata of our beloved nation, our people are deeply saddened by the lack of justice in India. With no system to enforce the laws of our land, those who wish to do harm to our people are allowed to run free. Consequently, innocent people are suffering. Our faith in the judicial system is diminishing, our assurance of justice is faltering, and our conviction to put a stop to corruption in our country is immeasurable. We urge a law to be passed guaranteeing a six month period from time of filing a complaint to its resolution by verdict of judge or jury of every case within the Judiciary of India. Also, we feel that a time limit be present on the finalization of appeals in the Indian Judiciary. We understand this may entail an overhaul of the Judicial system in India, but judicial reform is imperative and can be achieved through the redirection of wasteful resources. This appeal stands to captivate the attention of our government, whom we feel has moral and ethical responsibility to address this horrific problem. Our elected representatives and honorable Chief Justice very well know that this delay of judicial process makes us economically suffer as foreign direct investments are dropping due to concern for time taking judicial process in which foreign investors feel they cannot address their genuine concerns. As well as large companies, people of lower socioeconomic status are plagued by the delay in the Judicial system. Under their limited resources, poorer individuals cannot afford to file longstanding cases against wealthier individuals. From major investors in the Indian economy to the poorer classes of Indian society, all are being plagued by the gross delay in our courts. Those who do harm in India must face swift penalty for not abiding by our laws. This will instill the faith of the common citizen in the system, along with putting a stop to elements who are inciting disharmony and committing crimes with no regard for our laws. Today, criminals understand that nothing may happen for twenty or more years, evidence will be lost, witnesses will have died, and our judiciary will be unable to prove the guilt of these individuals. We do not support the concept of fast track courts as it excludes cases arbitrarily. This forces others to endure a slow judicial process. These issues within our government go against our constitution and our forefathers vision of equality and justice for all without discrimination toward race, caste, creed or ethnicity and do not provide equal access for all Indian citizens. We again urge the enacting of this law posthaste. We feel that those of you who work for and support our cause truly care for our country and the people of India. With sincere regards and Jai Hind.
