Chief Justice of India Justice K G Balakrishnan has stressed on the need to improve the justice delivery system in the country by establishing more courts for speedy disposal of pending cases.

Speaking at the concluding function of the Silver Jubilee Celebration of High Court of Bombay at Goa, held at Kala Academy in Panaji on Sunday, the CJI said there was a need to improve the judicial infrastructure in order to bring in effectiveness in the functsioning of the judiciary, an official release said on Monday.

"A system has been evolved for disposal of pending cases through Lok Adalat, Evening Courts and Mediation Centres, Balakrishnan said. This has significantly helped to reduce the number of cases and give speedy justice," he said.

He called for the need of proper training to judges and prosecutors to improve their efficiency.

"Police officials should also investigate the cases properly and help the judiciary to avoid undue delay in dispensation of justice," he added.

"There are instances of laboratories not giving reports in time," Balkrishnan said, stressing the need to have a complete prosecution system.

Supreme Court judge Justice V S Sirpurkar asked young lawyers to inculcate values of justice and refrain from twisting justice, boycotting courts and asking for too many adjournments.
