Lower courts to get 104 judges
Bangladesh Judicial Service Commission has selected 104 candidates for recruitment to the posts of assistant judges.
The result of the exams in this regard was published yesterday, which is now available on BJSC website.
Contacted, Law Minister Anisul Huq said the government has been working to increase the number of courts and judges.
"I hope the disposal of cases will increase and the backlog of pending cases will reduce to some extent after this recruitment," he added.
At least 36.5 lakh cases are pending with the lower courts and there are around 1,900 judges to deal with them, SC sources said.
