Dr. BR Ambedkar is not just a leader of Dalits; represents the entire nation: CJI DY Chandrachud

On the underrepresentation of women in judiciary, the CJI explained that the limited pool of available talent at the Bar and in district judiciary contributes to the underrepresentation of women in High Courts and the Supreme Court. He also mentioned positive developments in the district judiciary where 60-80% of fresh recruits are now women.

“I always explain that we draw upon a pool of available talent unlike in the US where you can make a senator a judge. So we have to increase that pool. Now in district judiciary, 60-80% of fresh recruits are women,” he stated.
