What a “Common man” thinks about the LAW & JUSTICE situation in the country

Delhi, India -- Thursday, January 28, 2010 3:05:00 PM

The Survey was conducted all across the country in a manner covering Gender, Caste, Age, Socio economic factors both at the Rural Bharat as well as the Urban India, In all the samples was for 17629 respondents during 5th Jan to 22nd Jan 2010 & some very interesting issues came in front.

The Ruchika-Rathore case was taken as a bench mark to start the research. The following facts came on the front. Surprisingly a large number of Indian Population were unaware of any such case owing to the low literacy level in the rural India & indicating a huge work required to improve the socio economic state of the country.

Most of the respondents felt that the Congress should try to capitalize & use the edge that they got by winning the last Lok Sabha elections owing to the scattered & unorganized opposition as a tool to garner this situation & mould it in such a way to yield maximum benefit for the country & in turn congress.

When asked if they knew about the Ruchika-Rathore case :33% of the Male respondents & surprisingly 51% of the female respondents had no idea of this leaving a wide gap on the issues that are happening on a national level, clearly indicating that the status of female population in India to be tapped & made educated.

Are you aware of Ruchika Rathore case ?

Male : Yes 63%; No 33%; DNT 4%

Female : Yes 47%; No 51%; DNT 2%

A large Indian population solidly believe that the powerful person “Do” make a impact on the judiciary system, moreover a large number of respondents preferred to be silent owing to the fear factor of the system & being used as a tool of this survey.

Do you think Powerful persons in India effect the Judicial System/LAW?

Male: Yes 72%; No 12%; DNT 16%
Female : Yes 47%; No 29%; DNT 24%

Do you think that the Judicial System in India is Correct?

Male: Yes 36%; No 52%; DNT 12%
Female : Yes 24%; No 65%; DNT 12%

A large number of respondents (65% Female, 52% Male) felt that the Judicial system is not correct in India, Female respondents showed a more aggressive & openly criticized then their male counterparts. When further this question was more bifurcated in terms of the standards of Judicial systems , we found as follows:

How do you Rate the Present Judicial System of India :

Male: Outdated 25%; Slow 40%; Very Slow 32%; DNT 3%
Female: Outdated 12%; Slow 35%; Very Slow 51%; DNT 2%

Meaning a stunning 97% of male respondents & 98% of female respondents found the current Law System Outdated/Slow/very Slow.

Do you have FAITH in the Indian Judiciary?

Male: Yes 47%; No 31%; DNT 22%
Female : Yes 41%; No 41%; DNT 18%

Unfortunately the trust & faith in the Judicial system has declined like never before to which a large number of respondents gave their nod. This is a alarming situation & need corrections in time, otherwise unfortunate & unexpected incidence of taking law in the hand may rise sharply because a large & a very high Indian population feels that amendments to the present Judicial system is a MUST.

When asked if they thought that the Central government should amend the constitution for faster delivery of Justice , a high number of respondents agreed on this & showed a clear message

Should the Constitution be amended for Faster Delivery of Justice:

Male: Very Much 47%; Yes 45%; No 3%; DNT 5%
Female : Very Much 24%; Yes 71%; No 6%; DNT 0%

A whopping 92% of males respondent & even higher 94% of female respondents did felt the NEED for the CHANGE of the Faster Delivery of JUSTICE.

Further a very large number of respondents (81% Males ; 76% Females) felt that the speedy delivery of Justice will result into effective & quality Justice, which is contrary to normal believe.

Will Speedy delivery of Justice result into Quality Justice:

Male: Yes 81%; No 9%; DNT 9%
Female : Yes 76%; No 6%; DNT 18%

The following simple remedies were suggested by the respondents for effective Judiciary:

1) Increase number of Courts
2) Increase number of Judges in the existing courts
3) Change constitution for faster Justice
4) Time bound delivery of the cases
5) Quick punishments to the Guilty
6) Reduction in number of Holidays for the Judiciary
7) Lesser Impact of Politicians on the Judiciary
8) Strong law on corruption
9) Increasing working Hours of the Courts
10) Two Shifts of Courts to avoid new Infrastructure

Two very strong points came during the survey:

1. A large number of respondents wanted to make the punishment & Penalties more strict :

Male: Yes 72%; No 14%; DNT 14%
Female : Yes 68%; No 15%; DNT 17%

2. An Equally large number of respondents felt that restricting the habit of lawyers on taking “DATES” as per their convenience & to delay the cases be controlled & this tool alone may speed up the cases to half the time as what is being taken today:

Male: Yes 87%; No 4%; DNT 9%
Female : Yes 71%; No 6%; DNT 23%

An overall view of the situation indicates that the Indian population by & large wanted strictly & strongly the amendments & faster disposal of the Cases, this will only be known to us in the times to come, that how the curent builders of the Modern India react to this demand from a “common man”

We end with the following popular quotes:

Justice Delayed is Justice Denyed
Delay of Justice is Injustice - W.S.landor


The Survey Poll was conducted pan India from 5th Jan to 22nd Jan 2010, among 17629 adults. Figures for age,sex,race/ethnicity,region were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population.

Primary data was collected through AMERICAN Stratified methods of sampling so that the minimum error of sample exists and that too may be rectified.
