CJI to IT Minister: Poor digital connectivity impacts the pace of justice delivery system


New Delhi, June 26 (ILNS): The Chief Justice of India NV Ramana expressed his concern over the digital divide, said that the poor connectivity in rural, tribal, remote and hilly areas was adversely impacting the pace of justice delivery. He said this during the course of panel discussion followed by the launch of the book, Anomalies of Law authored by Justice R V Raveendran

Justice Ramana informed that the digital divide was depriving thousands of young lawyers across the country of their livelihood. The matter of connectivity figured prominently in the two-day conference of Chief Justices of High Courts that was held recently.

A whole generation of lawyers is being pushed out of the system due to digital divide, the CJI lamented. Justice Ramana revealed that he recently wrote to the Minister of Law, Communications and IT highlighting these issues and requested him to initiate steps on priority basis to bridge the digital divide and also to evolve a mechanism to help the advocates who have lost livelihood due to pandemic and who are in dire need of financial assistance. The need to declare the legal professionals and associated functionaries as frontline workers and the need to vaccinate them all on priority was also highlighted by the CJI in the said communication addressed to the Minister of IT./ILNS/KR/SNG
