Speedy trial provisions under new criminal codes would not be of use if courts lack resources: CJI DY Chandrachud

The CJI in his speech also praised the BNSS for promoting electronic trial proceedings. However, he cautioned that the privacy of the parties concerns should be maintained during such proceedings.

“It was very heartening to notice that Section 532 of the BNSS allows for all trials, inquiries, and proceedings under the Code to be conducted electronically. As laudable as this addition is, we must continuously introspect and protect the privacy of the accused as well as the victim when dealing with digitisation of proceedings and creating digital evidence. In the digital age, the data and sensitive information of persons has gained paramount importance. This data can allow us to gain unparalleled efficiency and ease. However, the power which comes with personal data puts a corresponding duty to make systems which are immune to penetration and leakage of the data,” he said.
