"The Central government and the state governments are the biggest litigants in courts. The governments must ensure that litigations are initiated only in genuine and bona fide cases,"said Justice Bhandari, who is also the president of India International Law Foundation.
"We have carried out some reforms, but they are far from adequate and we need to carry out extensive judicial reforms. It is absolutely imperative in our country to ensure that cases are decided promptly in future," he said at the seminar organised by the foundation.
He also blamed the inadequate number of judicial officers, infrastructure, lack of use of modern technology and frequent adjournment by lawyers for delayed justice.
Giving an overview of judicial reforms in various countries, including China and Brazil, Justice Bhandari said global issues were becoming increasingly prominent because of liberalisation.
