A framework to determine the optimal strength of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) is important, given it's central role as an adjudicator under the Companies Act, the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, and the Competition Commission of India. The ability to collect standardised, comprehensive and consistent data from the NCLT, is critical for this. Such data systems support the development of models to estimate the optimal strength of each bench of such a tribunal. In this paper, we explore the use of the weighted caseload method to estimate the capacity requirements of the NCLT, on a recurrent basis given the presence of data.
