The time has now come to change the work culture and get out of the adjournment culture: SC

Supreme Court on Thursday barred grant of repeated adjournments routinely and told trial court judges to risk becoming unpopular among advocates by refusing at the drop of a hat any request for deferment of hearings.
Frowning at the 10 adjournments granted by an MP court in an eviction suit to delay the process by four years, a bench of Justices M R Shah and A S Bopanna said, “The courts shall be very slow in granting adjournments... The time has now come to change the work culture and get out of the adjournment culture so that the confidence and trust put by the litigants in the justice delivery system is not shaken and the rule of law is maintained.”
