"People have a lot of faith in the judicial system of India. We need to look at the manpower that is coming in this field in coming years. We have to think how can we create good law institutions, keeping in mind the needs of the future," Modi said, addressing a joint conference of chief justices of high courts and chief ministers here.

The conference was inaugurated by the prime minister."There is a great responsibility on the Indian judiciary. In fact, we all are the same kind of individuals carrying out responsibilities as per our potential and capabilities. But this is not the case with people in the judicial system, what they do is divine. God has sent you to carry out this divine responsibility," said Modi.

"The judiciary should be both powerful and perfect. This is the place that is trusted by common people," the Prime Minister said. Talking about the pending cases, Modi said people need to think how courts functioned if there was no electricity or there were other complications.

"We all talk about the pendency of cases in courts but have we ever thought the number of hours the judiciary has to spent on them and the problems they go through," Modi asked.

Talking about the usage of technology in the judicial system, Modi said "The quicker we get technology in this field, the easier it is to bring about a qualitative change."  

"None of the responsibilities is one sided, more we use technology in the judicial system, better it can function," he added.
