Steps to Expedite Pending Cases in the Labour Courts



(i) A Scheme of Holding of Lok Adalats as an “Alternative Grievance Redressal Mechanism” for speedy disposal of industrial disputes as introduced in the X Plan has been made indispensable part of the adjudication system from XI Plan;

 

(ii) Process of appointment to the Post of Presiding Officer is initiated about eight months in advance so that the successor to a serving presiding officer is selected by the time of completion of his tenure in a CGIT-cum-LC;

 

(iii) A system of link officers amongst Presiding Officers has been introduced to ensure that the judicial work of the CGIT-cum-LCs does not suffer when the post of regular Presiding Officer is vacant due to administrative exigencies;

 

(iv)Presiding Officers of CGIT-cum-LCs are advised to hold camp courts; and

 

(v) Conference of Presiding Officers is held from time to time to explore strategies for speedy and effective disposal of cases.

 

It may be noted that as per the provisions of Industrial Disputes Act, 1947, the Central Government has set up 22 Central Government Industrial Tribunals-cum-Labour Courts (CGIT-cum-LCs) in various states for resolution of industrial disputes arising in Central Sphere.  The adequacy of CGIT-cum-LCs is reassessed by the Government from time to time. Though the Union Labour & Employment Ministry does not keep the records in respect of Labour Courts and Industrial Tribunals falling in the State Sphere. are not maintained centrally.

However, the delay in settlement of cases depends on the absence of affected parties at the time of hearing; Seeking of frequent adjournments by the parties to file documents; Parties approaching the High Courts or Supreme Court challenging orders of reference issued by the appropriate government as well as orders issued by the Tribunals on preliminary points and  unwillingness of parties to come forward for getting their cases settled in Lok Adalats.

Also, as per Section 7, 7A &7B of the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 governing the constitution of Labour Courts and Tribunals, only one person can be appointed by the appropriate Government as Presiding Officer in the Labour Court.

The details of regarding  Central Government Industrial Tribunals-cum-Labour Courts and cases pending in them for the last two years are  given as follows:
