We are making those changes and we will try to get it passed by the next (Monsoon) session," Khurshid said on the sidelines of World Islamic Economic Forum event here.

"There will be a list of areas described as commercial areas that would be taken directly by the high courts. High court will have special division called commercial division. they will dispose off these matters. So it`s kind of fast track commercial work," he said.
The Commercial Courts Bill proposes that disputes involving subject matter worth Rs 5 crore and above would be decided by special division benches of high courts within one year.
