India Justice Report will consider 100 parameters, including budgets, human resources, infra and trends.
NEW DELHI: Tata Trusts will soon release a ranking of states based on their overall justice delivery including police, prisons, judiciary and legal aid.

The India Justice Report will consider 100 parameters, including budgets, human resources, infrastructure and trends in the functioning of all states, over the last five years to measure the performance of states across their police, prisons, judiciary and legal aid systems, said the philanthropic organisations that own two-thirds of Tata Group holding firm Tata Sons.

“We felt that a state-wise ranking across the four pillars would create a healthy competition among states,” Shireen Vakil, head (policy & advocacy) at Tata Trusts, told ET. The aim is to spur states to improve their performance in building the capacity of their respective subsystems of the formal justice system to deliver timely justice to citizens, Vakil said.

Officials of Tata Trusts recently made a presentation on the preliminary findings of the report before Niti Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar. The government think tank has been ranking states across social sector parameters in the spirit of competitive and cooperative federalism. In its vision document, Niti had suggested a ‘performance index for judges’ and a separate state-wise index of ‘ease of getting justice’.
