Only 0.4 per cent of GDP is spent on Judiciary

 

Mr Justice Madan B Lokur, Judge Supreme Court of India said that increasing the number of judges alone would not help in speedy disposal of cases. These initiatives should be followed up by toning up the infrastructure at the command of the courts in the country.

While addressing the Seminar on "Technology to Enable Accessible and Speedy Justice" organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in New Delhi, Mr Justice Lokur said that the judiciary was allocated only 0.4 per cent of the budgetary outlay, which was quite insufficient. "The total number of courts in the country is going to be increased from 14,000 as of now to 18,847. Apart from more judges, we require land, new courts, modernization of the existing courts, staff to help judges, resources etc., which will be hard to come by in this situation, when there are many other challenging agenda before the government ," he added.

In his address, Mr Fali S Nariman, Senior Advocate, underscored the need for accessibility to justice, which is enshrined in the Constitution. Intellectual Inventiveness, he remarked, was important in a pluralistic society like India. " We need judges, jurists and lawyers who can inspire common man and to help him in his pursuit of happiness. That can come by investing in our young lawyers, who are exposed to newer ideas and technologies," he added.

Mr. Justice A K Sikri, Chief Justice, Punjab and Haryana High Court underscored the need for judicial education and differentiated it with legal education. " Judicial education is based on two hypothesis. The first is that the judges should consult each other and the second training and innovation improves judicial performance and productivity considerably. We need a socially relevant adjudication process for speedy delivery of justice," he added.
