People’s faith in Constitutional institutions gets strengthened when justice is seen to be delivered, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday even as he cited the delay in getting justice as one of the major challenges faced by the people of the country.
After practically opening the All India Conference of Law Ministers and Law Secretaries, which was taking place at Ekta Nagar in Kevadiya, Gujarat, the prime minister addressed the crowd.
According to the prime minister, state governments can promote alternative dispute resolution as one of several initiatives to ensure quick justice for individuals. He also praised Lok Adalats for their involvement in the swift resolution of cases.
“The biggest issue faced by the public is delay of justice. He noted that when the legal system develops in tandem with society, it has a natural tendency to embrace modernity, and that is what our judiciary is attempting to do in Amrit Kaal.
The legal system adapts to societal changes, and throughout the COVID period, technology became an indispensable component of the court system.
The nation’s e-cost mission is progressing quickly. Legal proceedings are being conducted virtually. E-filing is also being promoted in addition. He said in a virtual address that, as courts use technology, the legal education system should also be modernised.
The Prime Minister also offered many recommendations for improving access to justice for the poor by making it more accessible, inexpensive, and clear.
PM Modi emphasised the need for the local language and suggested that regulations be written in plain language to ensure that the public can understand them. Some nations also have a rule that stipulates how long a law will be in effect at the time it is passed.
That is something we should also strive towards. The Ministry of Law and Justice arranged the conference with the goal of giving decision-makers a forum to discuss concerns with the Indian legal and judicial systems.
Members at this meeting included law ministers and secretaries of the legal departments of the states and union territories.
The states and union will discuss fresh ideas and best practises at this meeting. The conference will also cover alternate conflict resolution processes, including arbitration, in an effort to speed up the legal system.
