Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has laid stress on the requirement of timely and less costly justice for the common man, while underlining the need for reducing the number of pending cases in the courts.
He was speaking at the inauguration of the district court complex and Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre here on Saturday, an official release said. Chief justice of the Punjab and Haryana high court SK Kaul was present.
“The state government has taken all possible measures to increase the efficiency of the courts and ensure timely justice for people,” Hooda said, adding that Haryana was one of the leading states in the country when it came to having an effective judicial system. “Sufficient funds have been provided to create the infrastructure necessary to have a well-oiled judicial apparatus.”
In the past few years, modern judicial complexes had been built in 19 of the 21 districts in the state, while work on a similar centre in Mewat was in progress, the chief minister added.
Justice Kaul said the state government had paid attention to providing necessary facilities in the courts.
High court judges justice SK Mittal and justice Inderjit Singh and district and sessions judge Ramendra Jain, among others, were present.
