    Justice delayed is justice denied. There is no denying the fact that in India we have a large number of pending cases and if another case trying a serious offence is added to the queue, it would make it difficult for the courts to come follow the smooth functioning of the courts. This is the reason why we require Fast Track courts in India. It is because of the fast track courts why we could avoid delay to serve justice in cases like the Nirbhaya case. Fast track courts are special courts for speedy trials not only in India but in Foreign Countries as well. Fast track courts deal with speedy disposal or solution of cases to make the judiciary more effective and to avail justice as fast as possible. Article 21 of the Constitution of India guarantees right to a fair trial as an aspect of the fundamental right to life and personal liberty. The same is also guaranteed under Article 6 of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. The right to a speedy trial was first mentioned in landmark document of English law, the Magna Carta. The concept of right to speedy trial has grown in age by almost two and a half decades. It deals with speedy disposal of cases to make the judiciary more effective and to impart justice as fast as possible but the goal sought to be achieved is yet a far-off peak. Justice Krishna Iyer while dealing with the bail petition in Babu Singh v. State of UP, remarked, "Our justice system even in grave cases, suffers from slow motion syndrome which is lethal to 'fair trial' whatever the ultimate decision. Speedy justice is a component of social justice since the community, as a whole, is concerned in the criminal being condignly and finally punished within a reasonable time and the innocent being absolved from the inordinate ordeal of criminal proceedings. Fast Track Courts main objective is to expeditiously clear the large scale of pendency in the district and subordinate Courts under a time-bound programme.
