MOD SPONSORED LITIGATION INDUSTRY - MAKE IN INDIA PROGRAMME
Kudos to our Judiciary for finally taking steps to rein-in the Menace of unbridled MoD sponsored Litigation Industry.
After SC imposed 01 Lac fine on MoD twice for continued litigation on legally settled matters, now AFT Chandigarh asks for names of erring MoD Officials so that exemplary fine/ imprisonment can be ordered.
Presently over thousand appeals are pending in SC alone filed by MoD. 189 SLPs have been filed in NFU case itself.
For filing each such appeal in SC, over 02 Lacs are paid to lawyers.
This is how Crores from Def budget are being diverted to lawyers on frivolous litigation to clog justice delivery system & harass Soldiers & Veterans.
Cut from this loot is reportedly shared by all dealing officials.
We sincerely hope that Judiciary continues with similar judgements to cleanse this system.
