This paper brings to the fore the need for vision statements for the judiciary in India. Vision statements, called by whatever name, are not meant only for setting aspirational goals for the judiciary. As will be discussed in this paper, these statements lay down granular details about what targets the judiciary needs to achieve in a specific time frame, and how. Vision statements should also be mindful of how targets are arrived at. What the judiciary needs to achieve in the future should be informed by the progress made in the past, and must address the most imminent and foreseeable needs. To that end, vision statements look both into the past as well as the future.
