Mumbai: Judicial infrastructure is important for improving access to justice, but it is baffling to note that its improvement and maintenance was being carried out in an ad-hoc and unplanned manner in the country, Chief JusticeChief JusticeChief Justice of India N V Ramana said on Saturday. CJI NV Ramana made the remarks while he shared the stage with Law Minister Kiren Rijiju.
CJI Ramana was speaking at the inauguration of two wings of the annexe building at the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court. Noting that an effective judiciary can help in the growth of the economy, the CJI said courts are extremely essential for any society that is governed by rule of law. The CJI said today's success should not blind us to the issues that exist.
"We are faced with certain hard facts like several courts do not have proper facilities. Some courts function out of dilapidated buildings. Judicial infrastructure is important for improving access to justice," he said.
