CJI creates history by addressing HC, trail court judges through video conferencing

NEW DELHI: Outgoing Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi created a history on Friday by reaching out through video conferencing to 650 high court judges and the country’s 15,000 judicial officers facing many challenges including the “missing infrastructure” or “even reckless action from local members of the Bar”.

Justice Gogoi said in his speech that he always considered challenges of the job and hardships of life to be stimulating and intoxicating, making the grit and determination stronger.

An official of the Apex Court said that Justice Gogoi, who will demit the office of CJI on November 17, interacted with the judges of various high courts and their benches at 36 places and with judicial officers in 837 district and taluka courts across the country. (AGENCIES)
