“In today’s world, people expect instant justice but real justice could be the casualty in the quest for instant justice” Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana said on Saturday.
He said judges have to Expand their knowledge and ideas and they have to sharpen their technology skills.
On Saturday in the Madras HC CJI NV RAMAN SAID– “From the test match, we have moved to 20-20 format. We prefer short-duration entertainment over 3-hour-long movies. From filter coffee, we have moved on to instant coffee. In this era of instant noodles, people expect instant justice. But the people don’t realize that real justice will be a casualty if we strive for instant justice,”
The CJI was speaking at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the Administrative Block of Madras High Court and inaugurating the court buildings located in Namakkal and Villupuram Districts.
He said that people look up to the judiciary in times of distress and firmly believe that their rights will be protected by the courts.
“It is important to contemplate how to improve the functioning of the judiciary and how to reach out to people to fulfill justice needs,” the CJI opined.
Explaining further, he said: “It is a multi-dimensional concept. It calls for inclusivity, providing access to people to participate in proceedings, removal of the language barrier, reforms in practice, development of infrastructure, filling up of vacancies, augmenting the strength of judiciary and so on,” the CJI stated.
He also talks about the infrastructure of the courts, “Infrastructural development forms one of the core ideas with the expanding economy and growth in population. The population is rising alarmingly. But there is a severe gap between existing infrastructure and projected justice needs of the people,” the CJI said.
Ever since I have assumed office strengthening Judicial infrastructure had been my top most priority, he added.
He also appreciated the work done by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin in this regard.
“While TN has been working to improve Judicial infrastructure. I wholeheartedly appreciated the efforts of MK Stalin, CM of Tamil Nadu. This is why I am championing National Judicial Infrastructure Authority both at the national and state level which will implement a national court development project. I have already sent a proposal in this regard to the Government of India,” the CJI said.
