As per news report of The Indian Express, speaking at an event organised by the Karnataka State Bar Council to pay tribute to Late Justice MM Shantanagouder, Ramana highlighted the need for courts to be transparent and accountable. “The common man should feel scared of judges and courts. Courts should be comforting…The focus point of any legal system is the litigant…Courts should be transparent and accountable in nature,” he said, according to Bar and Bench.According to CJI Ramana, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) could help save resources, as well as the pendency of cases.
