SC Decided on August 2, 2018

Professionally qualified court managers, preferably with an   MBA   degree,   must   also   be   appointed   to   render assistance in performing the court administration. The said post of Court managers must be created in each judicial   district   for   assisting   Principal   District   and Sessions Judges. Such Court Managers would enable the District Judges to devote more time to their core work, that is, judicial functions. This, in turn, would enhance the efficiency of the District Judicial System. These court managers would also help in identifying the weaknesses
in  the court  management  systems and  recommending workable steps under the supervision of their respective judges for rectifying the same. The services of any person already   working   as   a   Court   Manager   in   any   district should be regularised by the State Government as we are of the considered view that their assistance is needed for a proper administrative set up in a Court
