Chief Justice of India S H Kapadia said setting up of commercial courts to achieve quick disposal of cases is being considered as other judges of the apex court favoured promotion of alternative dispute resolution mechanism to reduce the burden on courts. Speaking at a seminar on mediation, Justice Kapadia blamed lack of settlement culture in the country for the rise in pendency of cases and people not preferring out-of-court resolution of disputes. “We are thinking of setting up commercial courts,” he said. Speaking about huge arrears of cases in courts, Justice Kapadia said “in India we, do not have a settlement culture. People are not picking settlement culture (in India). Mediation and arbitration as a mode of dispute settlement is popular and successful in other countries,” he said. “We must understand the value of time. This is one of the areas we need to focus on how to promote that culture,” he said.
