Submitted by alvin on Mon, 2016-05-02 14:02 Mysuru: State government’s relief fund provided to tackle dought-hit districts is not sufficient and in no way it benefits the farmers who lost their crops, observed High Court Judge NK Patil.Addressing the media at Judiciary guest house on Monday, Patil wanted the government to constitute a state-level core committee to review drought relief work.On shortage of judges in high court and sessions court, Judge Patil said despite conducting exams to recruit judges, not many are coming forward to take up the exam. Now, there are 465 judges are serving in the High Court but this number is very less when compared to the long-pending cases.However, he appreciated the proposed plan to reappoint retired Judges in particular courts to clear pending cases.
