Report No. 58

No reason to be complacent

2.10. Some years ago, Chief Justice McRuer (of Ontario, Canada) said,1 that-

"In Canada, we have some reason to be proud of our judicial process, but we have no right to be smug."

This applies to India also. We have sound judicial traditions; a coherent pattern developed for the organisation of the judiciary; and a rational and systematic judicial process. There is no doubt that these factors have conferred great advantages on the country. An independent and efficient judiciary, a unified judicial system, and a modernised procedure-though legacies of the pre-independence year,-have been cherished by us. The judicial system has earned the respect of the people, and the respect so earned is well deserved.
