Narendra Modi

On April 03, Prime Minister Narendra Modi advocated the use of technology for speedy delivery of justice and assured CJI JS Khehar that the government will make all efforts to back his resolve to reduce burden on the judiciary and bring down pendency of cases.

PM Modi also asked startups to come up with innovations that could aid the judicial system to dispose of cases expeditiously.

In this regard, PM Modi said, "The government wants the judicial system of our country to make full use of information and communication technology. This should be given priority." According to PM Modi, "This can help save a lot of time and money."

Addressing a function to mark 150 years of the Allahabad High Court, PM Modi said, "I assure the chief justice that the government will back his 'sankalp' (resolve) to bring down the burden on the judiciary and reduce pendency of cases."

The PM also said that video conferencing should be used for deposition made in courts by undertrials, witnesses, and officials to prevent the wastage of time and money. "So many precious hours of officials, which should have been spent doing administrative tasks, get used up in travelling to far-off places to appear in courts. This can be obviated through video-conferencing," the PM said.

According to PM Modi, security concerns associated with physical production of undertrials in courts could be addressed via video-conferencing.
