india Updated: Nov 15, 2009 21:59 IST

Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily today said the government was planning to make judiciary "more accountable" but without compromising its independence and the respect for it.

"The government is planning to make judiciary more accountable. However, at the same time we would not like a
compromise with the independence and respect for the judiciary," he said here.

"I'm confident that steps which are being taken up by our government for judicial reforms would bring fruitful results," he said speaking on 'Judiciary Reforms' in connection with the 95th birthday celebrations of former Supreme Court Judge V R Krishna Iyer.

The Judges Standards and Accountablity bill will be introduced in the next session of Parliament after consulting
the judiciary. "We do not want to have confrontation with the judiciary," he said.

It was important that people have faith in the institution of judiciary and the rule of law.

"We are going in for amendment of the Arbitration Act. We need to march on to make India a destination for arbitration," Moily said.
