NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that the Government was making an effort to draft new laws in simple language.
Inaugurating a two-day International Lawyers Conference here, he said that ‘citizens should feel that the law belongs to them’ and gave the example of the Data Protection Law.
He said the Government was focussing on presenting any law in two languages – one to which the legal system is accustomed to and another for common citizens.
Hailing the monumental change in the judicial system, the Prime Minister congratulated the Supreme Court of India for making arrangements to get its judgments translated into four local languages, Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati and Oriya.
PM Modi called upon the legal fraternity to create a global legal framework to tackle cyber terrorism and money laundering. He said whether it is cyber terrorism, money laundering, artificial intelligence, or its misuse, the world needs a global framework to tackle these issues. When threats are global, the way to deal with them should also be global, he said.
Talking about the women reservation Bill, 2023, which was passed in Parliament recently, PM Modi said the Narishakti Vandan Act will give a new direction and new energy to women’s development in the country.
To achieve the goal of a developed nation, he expressed the need for an unbiased, strong, and independent judiciary and said that the judiciary and the bar have been the guardians of the Indian judicial system for years. He said that the legal fraternity plays a very important role in the building of any country.
PM Modi expressed confidence that the International Lawyers’ Conference 2023 will turn out to be extremely successful and each country will get an opportunity to learn from the best practices of other nations.
Speaking at the event Union Minister Arjun Mehgwal said under the Prime Minister’s leadership and guidance, the Government has made efforts to strengthen contract enforcement and commercial dispute resolution for ease of doing business.
Addressing the gathering, Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud called for collaboration of the world’s legal fraternity to find innovative solutions to challenges to justice delivery.
