Bar Association, Idukki v. State of Kerala

Judiciary – The trial courts are the backbone of the Indian Judiciary. They are the decision makers in a lis. The appellate courts are only judging their decisions. If there is no proper infrastructure and proper atmosphere for the decision makers in the trial courts, that will be a threat to the justice delivery system itself.

The issue involved in this case is the construction of a court complex for functioning the trial courts in the Idukki District. The proposal to construct a court complex at Idukki was initiated in 1997. Idukki is one of the important district in our State. The counsels narrated the sorry state of affairs now faced by the lawyers, judicial officers, advocate clerks, and litigants because of the lack of infrastructure in the present building where the courts are functioning. Without proper judicial infrastructure and a proper atmosphere to administer justice, the judiciary can not function. This writ petition is disposed stating that the dream of the Idukki people to get a new court complex is fulfilled soon.
