Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said there is a need to lessen the load on the judiciary which spends its maximum time in tackling cases where the government is a party. He also pitched for an All India Judicial Service on the lines of Indian Administrative Service.
Modi said, “The judiciary spends its maximum time on us. Us does not mean Modi, but the government.” He was addressing the golden jubilee celebrations of the Delhi High Court.
The Prime Minister said the load on the judiciary can be reduced if cases are filed after taking a considered view. He said if a teacher approaches court over a service matter and wins, then the judgement should be used as a yardstick to extend the benefit to thousands of others to reduce litigation at a later stage.
He said the issue of an All-India Judicial Service should also be debated.
