He said that new and innovative business models have come up which utilise the ever-expanding digital environment to maximise the gains by enhancing the market reach.

The new world order is bound to witness glory, he said as he listed how technology has helped in bringing the world together. In a situation of adversity, one should never accept defeat and have faith in oneself which he said makes each individual the captain of his ship.

“The new arrangement in the form of online dispute resolution has to be embraced with an open mind. The openness of the mind to accept the idea would be the real adaptation of the new world order,” he said.

He also said nothing can replace physical hearings in courts across the but both have to coexist.
