Courts told to go for modern communication
One-liner: The judicial institution has to give up resistance to adopting modern means of communication in order to reach out to the masses, SC judge DY Chandrachud said on Sunday.
Courts reticent: The top court judge, who is in line to become the Chief Justice of India later this year, said that courts have been reticent to modern means of communication.
Shed fear: He was of the view that judges and judiciary have to shed their fear, whether it is about using platforms like Twitter and Telegram, which are now widely prevalent, or the live streaming of proceedings.
- Justice Chandrachud was speaking at the valedictory ceremony of the first All India District Legal Service Authorities held at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi
On live streaming: On live streaming of judicial proceedings in the courts, he said, ``What will happen if I start live streaming my court proceedings? Will the people start assessing us? Or we will lose the respect of the community if we live stream court proceedings.''
