On Saturday, April 30, Prime Minister Narendra Modi integrated the joint conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi. Chief Justice of India, Justice NV Ramana & Minister for Law and Justice Kiren Rijiju were also present at the conference.
“We are doing our best to improve the judicial system. We are also working to improve and upgrade the judicial infrastructures,” said PM Modi in his address. He further mentioned the role of technology in the judicial system. “Government of India considers technology in the judicial system as an essential part of the Digital India mission. The e-courts project is being implemented today in mission mode.”
CJI NV Ramana also raised the issue of misuse of public interest litigation (PIL) for political & personal benefits. “Well-meaning intentions behind Public Interest Litigation (PIL) are misused as it’s turned into ‘Personal Interest Litigation’ to stall projects & terrorise public authorities. It has become a tool to settle scores with political & corporate rivals,” CJI stated.
The joint conference is organized to create frameworks & form some simple processes so that justice can be delivered on time.
