Chief Justice of India NV Ramana
New Delhi: With the pendency of cases crossing the 4.5 crore mark overburdening the three tier justice delivery system, Chief Justice of India N.V. Ramana on Saturday, said Mediation should be made mandatory as a first-step of dispute resolution, and a law should be framed in this regard.
Given the growing scope of mediation, it is time for India to enter Mission Mode. To popularise mediation as a cheaper and faster dispute resolution mechanism a movement needs to be launched," the CJI said.
