Getting back money deposited in court may become a speedy affair

Ahmedabad: If the chief justice gives nod to the observation made by a division bench, litigants may soon find it easy to claim their money back deposited with courts. A bench last month suggested that the courts should adopt the practice of electronic fund transfers instead of drawing cheques.

A bench of Justice Jayant Patel and Justice Abhilasha Kumari had also observed that all courts in the state should do away with the practice of drawing cheques, for it results in unnecessary delay in transfer of money. Since the new technology is available to speed up the process, the judiciary should adopt it. The bench had observed that it would save a lot of time, energy, cost and manpower at every level. However, the bench referred the issue to the chief justice for approval.
Accordingly, the bench headed by the chief justice has taken up proceeding suo motu in this regard. Due to the busy schedule on Monday, the case could not be taken up for hearing.
