The slows continue in India

India's Armed Forces Tribunal has a backlog of 16,000 cases. Three of the court's benches are functioning. Details here. Excerpt:
In September 2016, the Armed Forces Tribunal Bar Association had filed a complaint with the then Chief Justice of India demanding immediate appointment of judicial members for swift disposal of cases. 
The Supreme Court had took cognizance of the case and admitted it as a Public Interest Litigation. 
However, the apex court is yet to deliver a final verdict in the case. The last time hearing was ever conducted in the matter was more than a year ago on February 23, 2018.
