Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Justice NV Ramana on Friday said that filling vacant posts of courts is necessary to strengthen the judiciary. He said, we have to strengthen the judiciary infrastructure and fill the vacant posts, because access to justice will be possible only when there are no courts and basic facilities. We also have to strengthen the lower courts.
Not a single post remained vacant in the courts
Expressing concern over the delay in getting justice, the CJI said that as many vacancies of judges should be filled as possible. I do not want a single judge’s post to remain vacant in the District Court, High Court or Supreme Court. I am trying my best to fill the vacant positions. The judicial system also has to be strengthened. Right now many parts of the country do not even have the basic infrastructure to get justice.
Evaluation from target
The CJI said that the cases are increasing continuously in the courts.
Expressing concern over the pending cases in the courts, the CJI at the Conference of Judicial Officers in Telangana said that the pending cases are the biggest problem of the judiciary. He said that any organization providing any kind of service should be evaluated against the target achieved by it.
There is a question about justice in people’s mind.
Justice Ramana said that our judiciary is overburdened and the cases are increasing continuously. When people go to court for justice, the question remains in their mind that how many years will it take to solve a case?
Expressing concern over the delay in getting justice, the CJI said that in our country the right to appeal from the lower court to the Supreme Court has been given. In such a situation, it is difficult to say when the final decision will come in any case.
He said that the vacant posts would be filled only then the people would get justice. “I assure you that I am trying my best to resolve these issues on priority,” the CJI said.
People’s trust is our strength
He said that the biggest strength of the Indian judiciary is the trust of the people in the institution. Being a part of the judiciary, the priority is to ensure that the litigants are satisfied.
