XIII Finance Commission Assistance for Judicial Education:

Contribution and Role of State Judicial Academies (SJA)

 

Background

 

1. The Guidelines of the Government of India for release and utilisation of Grant-in-aid for Improvement in Justice Delivery as recommended by the Thirteenth Finance Commission (FC-XIII) dated September, 2010, includes the following:

 

“Training of Judicial Officers

 

A grant component of Rs250 crores has been provided for training of judicial officers in the country to support and strengthen the induction and in-service training of judicial officers. The funds may be used to accelerate these capacity building efforts, under the overall supervision of the HLMC.

 

State Judicial Academies

 

Recognizing that the main vehicle for training judges is the State Judicial Academy, FC-XIII has noted that some state academies are well equipped but others have little infrastructure and few facilities. To enable these academies to complete the training of judges promptly through the year, Rs 15 crores has been allocated per High Court (Rs 300 crores for twenty High Courts). These funds may be used to create the physical infrastructure of the judicial academies in states where they do not exist, or for providing additional facilities in the existing academies.”

 

1. State-wise allocation of grants is as follows:

 

State Training of Judicial Officers(Rs Crores) Strengthening State Judicial Academies (Rs Crores) Training of PPs (Rs Crores)
