Punjab Governor and UT administrator Shivraj V Patil today inaugurated a new district judicial courts complex in Sector-43 Chandigarh.
Speaking on the occasion, Patil said, “to give speedier, more just, and less expensive justice, the cooperation between the judges, the lawyers, the government officers, the experts, the witnesses, the litigants, the people at large, the media, is required. In absence of cooperation between them, it may not be very easy to achieve the objectives of doing full, speedier and effective justice.”
Patil further emphasized the need to adopt holistic approach which is necessary to produce better results. Nothing is possible to do in a correct manner, without adopting a holistic and cooperative approach.
Patil said that inside the complex and court rooms, many other things like the CCTV cameras, cameras and tape recorders may be needed to record the evidence and arguments. Patil said that the new complex is enormous and will provide more and better facilities for the courts, the lawyers and the people. It may meet their demands of a few years to come but something more and better is required to be done. He asked the Chief Architect and all concerned officers of UT Administration to chalk out a comprehensive plan for the court rooms of next block of the complex to be constructed in the next phase.
