In his inaugural address, the Chief Justice emphasized on the importance of the role played by Judicial Magistrates in the Judicial system, as people come to the magistrates with their grievances and it’s the magistrates who decide whether or not to enter a case in the system which is a very crucial and critical area of the judicial system as the judges sitting at Higher Courts are only supervising authority while as magistrates are the original authors.
The Chief Justice also thanked the resource persons who have themselves been the part of the system for sparing time to enlighten the Magistrates with their vast knowledge and experience.
In his special address, Justice Sanjeev Kumar underlined that the purpose of imparting this training is to enhance the performance of Judicial officers and to remove inhibitions while applying the provisions of law in their day-to-day court work. He also observed that technical session on expediting the trial/disposal of Criminal cases is of great importance because the delay in disposing of the cases is of grave concern for all us associated with the dispensation of justice.
