Mumbai: Copies of Supreme Court decisions will soon be made available in other languages of the country including Hindi. Along with this, people will get information about the court decision in their language. Chief Justice of the country DY Chandrachud announced this during a program organized by Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa at Yogi Auditorium in Dadar, Mumbai. The Chief Justice said that every possible effort would be made to provide cheap and speedy justice to the people in the remotest parts of the country. Judiciary will not be effective until the citizens of our country get the information of the court decision in a language they understand.
He further said that with the help of technology, extensive changes can be brought about in the courts. With the help of artificial intelligence, the work towards making the decisions of the Supreme Court available in every language has been completed. Law is made for the individual. That is why the system cannot be above the individual. Chief Justice Chandrachud emphasized on live telecasting of court proceedings and said that the mission is to make the court paperless and technology enabled.
Appreciating the increasing participation of women in the judiciary, he stressed on giving more opportunities to young and new lawyers. I listen to young lawyers for half an hour every day.
