Commercial Courts Established in Balochistan for Expeditious Disposal of Commercial Cases
|Reform Description||Before: Businesses suffer as commercial Cases were taking much time for resolving a business dispute, because of a huge litigation burden, causing delay and resulting in loss of confidence by businesses on the system.
After: Now, legislative changes enabling establishment of Commercial Courts have been made to fast track dispute resolution
|Beneficiaries||Businesses involved in litigation|
|Department||Law department and provincial judiciary of Balochistan|
|Date of Implementation||24-09-2021|
|Timeline||Last 03 Months|
|Details||Difficulty||Commercial disputes were filed in courts where considerable time was consumed for resolving a commercial dispute, because of a greater number of cases (related to all other categories as well). Resultantly, businesses were losing confidence to operate in Pakistan.|
|Analysis||There was dire need to introduce dedicated Commercial Courts to have quick disposal of commercial cases. The reform will help in speedy disposal of commercial cases.|
|Solution||Accordingly, the Government of Balochistan has approved “The Balochistan Commercial Courts Bill, 2021” to establish separate courts/benches for Commercial Case hearings.|
|Evidence||Commercial Courts Balochistan|
