President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday said that High Courts deliver judgment in English but some litigants may not be able to understand it as they are not familiar with the language.

President Kovind was addressing the valedictory function of the diamond jubilee celebrations of the High Court of Kerala.

Speaking on the matter, he further stated that a system should be evolved wherein people can get the copy of the judgment in their local and regional languages.

“Perhaps system can be evolved where certified translated copies of judgment are made available by HCs in local and regional languages," the President said.

Besides this, he also advocated for speedy disposal of cases as he said “the poorest and most underprivileged” in society were the sufferers of delayed justice.

“Delay in delivery of justice is a pressing concern in our country. Often those who suffer are among the poorest and most underprivileged in our society. We must find mechanisms to ensure quick disposal of cases,” he said.
