India’s Supreme Court is the busiest in the world. Its judges are hardworking. They give importance to justice by focusing on the welfare of the public. And Supreme Court judges are appointed on the basis of honesty and merit.
Courts are not only made up of judges and lawyers. Includes petitioners and counter-petitioners. Therefore, they should realize that there is an environment to present their case freely in the courts.
Courts cannot continue to adhere to traditional procedures in resolving complex cases. Change to new ways. Otherwise there will be setbacks in the delivery of justice. Hence, the judiciary should take regular training on the changing technologies.
Lack of trust is a major challenge for the justice sector. Courts should not lose their legitimacy. Court judgments must be acceptable to the public on the basis of law. He said this. Change to new ways. Otherwise there will be setbacks in the delivery of justice.
