He appreciated the services rendered by NALSA since it started functioning 27 years ago. He also stressed on the need to strengthen alternative dispute redressal mechanisms like Lok Adalat and Mediation Centres.
‘Most people suffer in silence’
Justice NV Ramana in the first meeting of All India District Legal Services Authorities said that technology is playing a big role in enabling people. He urged the judiciary to adopt modern technology tools to speed up the delivery of justice. CJI Ramana said that our Constitution promises social, economic and political justice to every Indian. He said that the reality is that today only a small percentage of our population can approach the justice delivery system when needed. Due to lack of awareness and necessary resources, most of the people keep suffering in silence.
