Statement: Should there be more than one High Court in each state in India?

Arguments:

1. No. This will be a sheer wastage of taxpayers' money.
2. Yes. This will help reduce the backlog of cases pending for a very long time.

 [A]. Only argument I is strong [B]. Only argument II is strong [C]. Either I or II is strong [D]. Neither I nor II is strong [E]. Both I and II are strong

Explanation:

Clearly, an increase in the number of High Courts will surely speed up the work and help to do away with the pending cases. So, argument II holds strong. In light of this, the expenditure incurred would be 'utilization', not 'wastage' of money. So, argument I does not hold.

 Rajarajan P said: (Aug 14, 2013) But without establishing more high courts we can appoint more judges to dispose the cases swiftly in each state. Whereas establishing a separate high court will cost the Government in excess in terms of infrastructure and maintenance. So option A, Only argument I is Strong.

 Ranjit Kumar said: (Mar 8, 2018) Every state has one government and similalry there must be one high court instead of high court we can have district court? So, according to me, the correct option is B.

 Rahul Mazumder said: (May 6, 2018) In India already a number of High Court which operates out of more than 1city in the State (the Concept of Benches). Eg: Bombay Hogj Coury has a parallel Bench at Nagpur. It is required that more such Benches of existing High Courts are established and not more High Courts. Accordingly, Option A should be the correct answer.
