MAKE JUDICIAL SYSTEM PEOPLE FRIENDLY & TRANSPARENT

It is high time that the delivery of justice is made people friendly.
 My bike was stolen and was recovered by the Police. I had to spend nine days with advocate, court and police officials altogether to get the bike released. Everybody agreed that the bike was mine. Even then it took nine painful days. In such cases, when ownership is not disputed, should not the Police be authorized and instructed to hand over the bike to its owner immediately after taking bond?

One of my friends, Shri N.K.Mehta, told," He was a government witness in a criminal case. He did not receive any summons or bail able warrants to testify in the court. One beautiful morning an ASI of Bihar Police called on him with a non-bailable warrant. You may just guess, " How a common man might have felt?" How will anyone dare to volunteer himself to help the law enforcing machinery? This is why people express," Only unfortunate persons get involved with the Police, the court or the hospital."


A robbery was committed in Motihari branch of our bank. All the present staff members were made government witnesses. All had the same oral complaints that they did not receive any summons or bail able warrants. The Police approached them when nonbailable warrants against them were issued by the court.  However since this issue involved many staff members, so the Police was lenient, they just advised them to testify in the court and get their nonbailable warrants withdrawn.
Once a Magistrate in Gujrat issued warrants, in a false and fabricated case, against the then honorable Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice V.N.Khare and the then honorable President Mr. A.P.J.Abdul Kalam.

 Should there not be a grievance redressal system in the courts also to fix responsibility on delinquent employees and punish them?
Once The then Honourable Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, P.Sathasivam, the Chief Justice of India expressed concern over the steady decline of the reputation of Judiciary and legal profession while addressing Judges, Advocates and other eminent persons in Chennai.

It is high time for taking concrete actions to address the issue.

  1. The constitution guarantees our freedom provided we are abide by the law. We try short cuts, which is making the system non-transparent. IIndly the entire law books & decisions are quite lengthy with a no. of proviso, honourable Chief Justice of India must give suitable guidelines in plain terms.

  2. Sir, the real problem is that the procedure to obtain justice is too much time taking, there needs to be simplification. A public greivance redressal machinery is working at almost all the offices to hear public greivance and punish erring staff. Should such geivance redressal machinery not be made in courts also?
