Call for Applications: Full Time Researchers Required for Department of Justice Project on Pendency in Bangalore

Research Project:

The Department of Justice is implementing a Scheme for Action and Studies on Judicial Reforms. Under this scheme the Ministry has sanctioned a research project to DAKSH. Over the last seven years we have been aiming to create inclusive, transparent, self-correcting mechanisms that encourage accountability in all branches of the government. From past few years, our particular focus of study has been on judiciary. In order to strengthen our vision we have undertaken the project titled, “Comparative Analysis of Causes for Pendency in Six High Courts and Six District Courts in India” commissioned by the Ministry of Law. As a part of this project we will be collecting data from 12 courts, six of which are High Courts and the other six are district courts. From each of these courts we intend to study 500 cases.

Task Profile:

We need 2 full time researchers that can spend the next 3 months working on this project by collecting and analysing the case records.

Qualification Required:

Candidates either pursuing or possessing a basic degree are required. Both undergraduates and postgraduates can apply. We require the candidate to work from our Bangalore office full time for 3 months between September and December.


Candidates will be given a monthly stipend. This will be discussed once we conduct an interview. Additionally, a certificate with regard to same will also be provided by the DAKSH.
