Outgoing Chief Justice of India N V Ramana said pending cases are a challenge before the judiciary, expressing regret on Friday that he “could not give the requisite attention” to the complex issue of the list of cases.

Explaining the reason, he said, ‘We are engaged in fire fighting throughout the day. We work on day to day basis. All parties have an equal contribution to this problem.”

CJI Raman said the only way is to improve the functioning of the system. “We need to deploy modern technology tools and artificial intelligence to find a sustainable solution,” he said.

He also said that although the court “tried to develop some modules, due to compatibility and security issues, we could not make much progress. Due to the COVID emergency, the priority was to run the courts”.

The CJI said that “unlike commercial establishments, we cannot secure technical equipment directly from the market. The needs of the judiciary are different from those of the rest… Then there is an inherent resistance to everything new. Unless the bar is ready to cooperate wholeheartedly, it will be difficult to bring about the necessary changes. “We have to keep pace with the changing times and move ahead,” he said.

“Unfortunately, during the last 16 months, my tenure as CJI, full hearing was possible only in about 50 days,” CJI Ramana said.

He said he was stepping down after being a part of the judiciary for 22 years “with the utmost content” and added that he had done his job for the judiciary to the best of his ability.

“People may come and go, but the institution lasts forever. Of course, everyone has to make their contribution. I have done my best to the best of my ability,” CJI Ramana said.
