The idea of regional Supreme Court Benches, and ‘divisions’ of the top court

The idea of regional Supreme Court Benches, and ‘divisions’ of the top court
Recently VP M Venkaiah Naidu made the following suggestions;
1.Institute four regional Benches to tackle the enormous backlog of cases, and to ensure their speedy disposal.
2.The court should be split into two divisions. 
•In the early decades of the Republic, the Supreme Court of India functioned largely as a constitutional court, with some 70-80 judgments being delivered every year by Constitution Benches of five or more judges
•This number has now come down to 10-12. Due to their heavy workload, judges mostly sit in two- or three-judge Benches to dispose of all kinds of cases
•More than 65,000 cases are pending in the Supreme Court, and disposal of appeals takes many years
