Cuttack: Expressing concern over the
pending of a large number of cases, Orissa Chief Minister
Naveen Patnaik on Sunday stressed for the need of evolving
mechanisms to ensure timely and inexpensive justice.

"In our anxiety for quick justice, the quality or
efficiency in adjudication and justice delivery should never
be sacrificed," Patnaik said during the East Zone Regional
Judicial Conference organised by the National Judicial
Academy.

An increase in number of cases in courts and their
disposal have been standing on the way of quality of
adjudication, he said.

The CM, however, maintained that the legislature and
judiciary are making best efforts to sort out this problem and
hoped that all stakeholders must be involved in the process to
address the issue.
