We, Directorate of Monitoring PPD, have devised a blueprint with a view to shift from individual performance oriented to case oriented mode of inspection in Punjab Public Prosecution Department. It does not mean that individual performance would be neglected altogether; ultimately it would be individual performance which is to be enhanced to improve prosecution functions regarding each category of cases.
In order to make mode of inspection more focus oriented and result oriented, it needs to be more case specific instead of focusing on various categories of cases in the same inspection visit. This case specific approach would allow this directorate to look into various prosecution deficiencies pertaining to the same category of cases in the same visit and enable this directorate to propose solutions to remove found out prosecution deficiencies without restraining itself to looking into individual performance of the prosecutors. This shift from individual performance specific to case specific mode of inspection would also make the prosecutors more agreeable to cooperate with the directorate to achieve the desired results.
For this purpose top twenty (20) categories of cases have been selected from all the districts in Punjab so that, in rotation, inspection visit may be conducted regarding each category of those cases. When sufficient data regarding a category of the case becomes available, an analysis would be made regarding respective category of cases and suggestions to remove found out deficiencies would be communicated to the Administrative Department for consideration.
Regarding the schedule of inspection visits for next month (i.e. Dec, 2016) the offence 302 PPC has been chosen to collect the relevant data thereof. For the purpose three (3) districts (Faisalabad, Lahore and Gujrat) which have maximum incidence of this offence and two (2) districts (D.G Khan and Lodrah) which have minimum incidence of this offence have been selected so that a comparative data analysis may be made.
At the first stage case files (FIR, 173 Report, 9(7) Report, 9(5) Scrutiny Report and Judgment) regarding the offence 302 PPC would be obtained from the respective district offices for making required analysis. After making analysis the respective district offices would be consulted to ascertain the finding of the analysis and the suggestions based on final analysis would be communicated to the Administrative department for consideration.
The views of colleagues about this plan of case specific mode of inspection as delineated above are welcomed.
