Attorney General Yagya Murti Banjade has said that there should be change in the current procedural to ensure swift justice.”(Current) Procedural is lengthy so it takes time for justice. We have suggested there should be new act for the procedural,” Banjade said.

His comments have come at a time when there have been complaints about lengthy process of justice dispensation in the country.

In its latest annual report, the Office of the Attorney General has listed that out of 26,285 cases fought by government lawyers across the country in the fiscal year 2062/63, only 10,500 could be settled.
