Ensure Implementation Of Court Orders: President Murmu Urges Centre, CJI

President Droupadi Murmu on Wednesday asked the central government and the chief justice as well as other stakeholders to devise a system to deal with cases where the court verdict in not implemented.

The President while inaugurating the new building of the Jharkhand High Court here said the authorities have to ensure that people get justice in the true sense.

“Chief Justice of India Justice (Dr D Y Chandrachud) and Union Law Minister (Arjun Ram Meghwal) and many senior judges are here. They should devise a system to deal with cases where the (court) verdicts are not implemented,” Murmu said.

She added that she would urge the CJI and the government that they “ensure that justice is delivered to people in the true sense”.

The President pointed out that even after getting a favourable verdict, people’s happiness is sometimes short-lived, as the court orders are not implemented.

Murmu also appreciated the CJI for speaking in Hindi during his address.

“The language of justice should be inclusive,” she said.

Murmu also pointed out that expensive litigation procedure often keeps justice out of reach of the common people.

“Access has many aspects. Cost is among the most important of these. It has been observed that the expenses of litigation all too often put the quest of justice out of reach for many citizens…. I urge all stakeholders to think innovatively and find new ways to expand the reach of justice,” she said.
