Justice Kannan said the Railway claims tribunal was an institution established with the aim of the quick disposition of justice to the victims. He said there were 33,000 cases in the trial stage at 22 tribunals all over India. Ninety per cent of the cases belong to incidences where human beings were the victims while others related to goods and claims, he added.
