‘Pay attention in trial courts’ is necessary to stop the growing number of cases: CJI Chandrachud

India’s Chief Justice, DY Chandrachud, said on Saturday that in order to lessen the backlog of cases, trial courts must “pay attention.”

The CJI made the following statement during the opening of an arbitration center: “Trial courts are where the solution to problems begins; there is a need to pay attention.” The number of instances like these that belong in the trial court itself are growing in the Supreme Court. People are turning to the Supreme Court more often as a result of small-case bail being unavailable, and the pressure there is growing.

Regarding Uttar Pradesh, Chief Justice Chandrachud said that the state is seeing a rise in investment. He said, “In this regard, it is necessary to have expansion and trust in the judicial sector.” Industries would be established in the state.

“I ask all senior advocates to engage with technology, work on tablets and laptops and a lot of people are doing this now,” the CJI added, urging advocates and others in the legal profession to use technology.

He made the following statement on young people entering the legal field: “This generation thinks differently and a huge number of women are arriving in it. Here, they believe their future is assured.”

Chandrachud said, “I grew up in an urban environment, but after coming to Uttar Pradesh, the heart of India, I got to learn and know a lot,” in reference to his time serving as chief judge of the Allahabad High Court.
