Tej Bahadur Singh, the chief judicial officer in the family court of Muzaffarnagar, has set a record by deciding an unprecedented 6,065 cases in 327 days. He has thus become the first Indian judge to decide so many cases in this time period.

APN carried a package in its Office Office show on April 8 on this. Tej Bahadur Singh continued work right through the advocates’ strike. During the course of 327 days, the hard-working judge also succeeded in mediating for 903 couples who had filed for divorce.

According to available statistics for the year 2015-16, there are 2.81 crore pending cases in various courts of the country. Some 5,000 judicial officers’ positions are lying vacant. Singh has set a fine example before other judicial officers by achieving this feat.
