Indian Judiciary ‘most robust institution’ in the world: CJI Misra

On his last working, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra while delivering his farewell address on October 1 said that Indian judiciary is the “most robust institution” in the world and young lawyers were assets having potential to develop the jurisprudence.

“Our judiciary has been strongest judiciary in the world having capability to handle mind blogging number of cases,” said CJI Misra.

The CJI was speaking at an event organized by the Supreme Court Bar Association. The event was also attended by Attorney General of India K K Venugopal and senior advocates.

Ranjan Gogoi, Chief Justice of India-designate, who will take over Misra from October 3, said that Justice Misra’s greatest contribution has been to civil liberties. Gogoi hailed his remarkable judgments against mob lynching, abolition of section 377, honour killings among others.

“Justice must have human face,” CJI said.

He further added, “In my whole career as a judge, I never disassociated myself from the lady of equity.”

During the speech he said, “I am indebted to Bar at every level and go from here with satisfaction.”
