HYDERABAD: : Justice Anil R Dave, Supreme Court judge, on Saturday asked the judicial officers to feel themselves as agents of Almighty to deliver quality justice to the litigant parties.
Speaking at the two-day state level judicial officers conference organised by the Hyderabad High Court here, Justice Dhave opined that the judicial officers should not try to rationalise their errors in rendering justice to the needy. In fact, it would be difficult to keep both the litigant parties happy while rendering justice. However, it would be possible if ADR (Alternative Dispute Redressal) mechanism was adopted and resolved the dispute through consultation or mediation process, Justice Dave observed.
Justice Dipak Misra, another judge of the Supreme Court, called upon the judicial officers to act independently and not to hear anyone while doing justice to the needy persons.
The judge said that it is the government which is the biggest litigant in the courts and asked both the CM’s of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to introduce rational litigation policies for their respective states.
Justice NV Ramana, another judge of Supreme Court, felt the need for finding out the root cause for growing pendency of cases.
There was a need to adopt latest technologies like IT applications, and also ADR mechanism to resolve the pending cases at a faster pace, he added.
