“Justice delayed is justice denied” is a legal maxim commonly knownto general public. Inthe last decade, numerous judicial policies came into existence but not a single was implemented by the judicial officers and a pressure was developed on litigants and lawyer community to wind up cases expeditiously without seeking an adjournment even though it is a genuine one. The policies were made in good faith but are posing a serious threat to the ‘due process’ which is the vehicle for the rule of law.
