"The quality of democracy rests on the quality of justice; For a healthy democracy, a vibrant judiciary is essential. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many problems to many institutions, including the judiciary. Thousands of cases have accumulated before different forums, apart from the large vacancies and non-working of courts and lack of virtual conferencing facilities in rural and remote areas. My companion judges and I have attempted to enable the litigant to get faster justice. May onwards, we have recommended more than 106 judges to different high courts and 9 Chief Justices to various high courts. The government has cleared some of them and the Hon'ble Law Minister has assured that the rest of the things will come in one or two days. I thank the government for clearing these vacancies and giving quick access to justice to the people. These appointments will take care of the pendency to some extent. I seek cooperation and support from the government to enable access to justice and to strengthen the democracy", stated CJ N. V. Ramana on Saturday.
