The hallmark of Great Judges & institutions is that they are keener on Justice than on law, CJI Sharad Arvind Bobde said in Tripura Wednesday.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of an e-Sewa Kendra at the HC of Tripura, CJI Bobde, said while taking the decision to go electronic in the Justice delivery system, he was ‘acutely conscious’ that it would make justice ‘technology-dependent’. However, he said, the other option meant was to shut down courts completely during the pandemic, which was an impossibility, especially for the HC's & the Apex Court.
While admitting that E-Courts have made access to justice dependent on technology, possession of which varies on an individual’s personal resources, the CJI said e-Sewa Kendras can fill this gap.
E-Seva Kendras are supposed to serve as a one-stop centre for the needs of the common litigant. These kendras are envisaged to be located at the public entry gate in Courts & other legal institutions to make them accessible.
CJI Bobde said that “There was an old saying about legal aid in England, & things can’t be like that. The saying was that access to justice is like the rich hotel; it’s open to all. It is this meaninglessness of such words which the e-kendra seeks to eliminate".
