 Concerned about the Indian judiciary’s still-dominant feudal worldview, Supreme Court judge Justice DY Chandrachud stated;  on Sunday that; it needs to shift to a more “modern and futuristic” approach, and that  technology can help with that transition.

Justice Chandrachud  addressing at the Gujarat High Court’s National Conference on Mediation and Information Technology. The amount of obedience among the judges of the District Judiciary, he claimed, reflects the Indian judiciary’s feudal norms.

“We all know that Indian law is still essentially feudal. The element of subordination that we practice among the judges of the District Judiciary exemplifies these feudal customs “he stated

Illustrating how technology can aid in this reformation, Justice Chandrachud continued:

“Inspection of districts, that’s;  a supply of very excellent strain to district judiciary, may be extensively modified if; we permit for digital registers for inspection with the aid of using the High Courts. Likewise, while we verify the overall performance of judicial officers, within side the choice and promoting of judges, all of the manner throughout;  I believe, now no longer simply from; the district judiciary to High Courts however from High Courts to Supreme Court, we are able to do plenty to appease the complaint that; our procedures aren’t objective. And we are able to assuage that; complaint provided we use generation in a goal way for individuals who are below attention for better judicial office. So I do accept as true with generation is complete of untapped ability for converting the face of Indian judiciary and making it extra modern”.
