Referring to the caseload faced by Supreme Court judges, Justice Rohinton Nariman today remarked in open court that the burden on Supreme Court judges is “crushing”..He was responding to a request by a lawyer for a listing of a case..“The burden on us is crushing. Please go before the Vacation Bench”, Justice Rohinton Nariman said to the lawyer..Mentioning in some other cases were also turned down..“This matter has been de-listed. May it be listed?”, mentioned another lawyer..“No. We have no control over listing and de-listing”, said Nariman J..As of May 1, the number of cases pending before the Supreme Court is 58,168. 38,856 of these are admission matters, while 21,312 are regular hearing matters..The statistics released by the Supreme Court also reveal that 12,914 of these matters are such that they cannot be listed before the Court for hearing..A total of 558 Constitution Bench matters are pending before the Court, justifying suggestions to make the Supreme Court a purely constitutional court.
