Targets set up by cat benches to dispose pending cases

The number of cases filed in Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has been increasing during the recent past. During the period July, 2007 to December, 2008 a number of corporations/societies and other authorities were brought within the jurisdiction of the Central Administrative Tribunal, which raised the number of autonomous bodies/corporations/societies owned or controlled by the Central Government from 47 to 191. As a result, a few thousand cases were transferred from various High Courts and other Subordinate Courts to the respective Benches of the Central Administrative Tribunal and this is one of the reasons for increase in the number of cases registered in the Tribunal.

The number of cases filed in the Central Administrative Tribunal, increased and there was corresponding increase in the rate of disposal of cases, and overall pendency has been under control. As on January 31, 2010, pendencey in respect of all the Benches of the Tribunal is 22440. During the year, 1824 cases were instituted and 1911 were disposed. For 2009, 24496 cases were instituted, 23681 were disposed and 22527 were pending.

The following steps have been taken to clear the pending cases:

(i) Monthly Pendency report is called for from all the benches of Central Administrative Tribunal and the rate of disposal is personally monitored by the Chairman, Central Administrative Tribunal

(ii) Targets are set up by the Chairman for the Benches.

(iii) During the All India Conference 2009, the Benches were advised to give priority to disposal of old cases pending since 2004 to 2007.

The Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 (PC Act) and the Central Vigilance Commission Act, 2003 (CVC Act) provide the effective investigative machinery into the offences of corruption. The Central Vigilance Commission alongwith the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Ministries concerned every year draw specific lists of officers of doubtful integrity who are kept under surveillance. The enactment of the Right to Information Act, 2005 as a comprehensive legislation provides an effective mechanism for access to information and disclosure by the authorities to work against any corrupt practices and exploitation.

So far as CBI is concerned, as on 31.01.2010, there are 1061 cases under investigation. The time taken for investigation of cases by the CBI depends on the nature of cases, number of voluminous documents requiring scrutiny and the number of witnesses. CBI endeavors to complete investigation in all cases at the earliest. There is a laid down system of holding monthly and quarterly review meetings where the cases under investigation are examined with a view to finalize them early.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions Shri Prithviraj Chavan in written reply to question in the Lok Sabha.
