Indian Supreme Court is guardian of the largest democracy: CJI NV Ramana

New Delhi, July 18 (ANI): The Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana virtually attended ‘India-Singapore Mediation Summit 2021’. At the summit, CJI Ramana said, “People are confident that they will get relief and justice from the judiciary. It gives them the strength to pursue a dispute. They know that when things go wrong, the judiciary will stand by them. The Indian Supreme Court is the guardian of the largest democracy.” He then spoke on the pendency of cases and said, “The often-quoted statistic that pendency in Indian Courts has reached 45 million cases, which is perceived as the inability of the Indian judiciary to cope with the caseload is an overstatement and an uncharitable analysis. The term ‘pendency’ is used to refer to all cases which have not yet been disposed of, without any reference to how long the case has spent in the judicial system... This is, therefore, not a useful indicator of how well, or poorly, a system is doing”
