New Policy will reverse govt’s image as biggest litigant: Gowda
Members of a Parliamentary committee on Wednesday expressed concern at the government being the biggest litigant as Law Minister DV Sadananda Gowda said the proposed National Litigation Policy would reverse the image. He said the new policy will bring in a mechanism to reduce government litigation and make it an efficient and responsible litigant. The Union minister said that the policy suggests a mechanism to reduce filing of cases by or against the government.
It aims to transform government as an institution which does not believe in entering into unnecessary and avoidable litigation by taking appropriate steps at pre-litigation stage itself.
