Ranchi: Chief Justice of India Justice Altamas Kabir, on Saturday, called upon the judiciary to come up with something 'extra' to deliver justice to the rich and the poor alike.
"As Justice S J Mukhopadhaya said, judiciary is not a 9 am to 5 pm job. There should be something extra to work, and there is a reason to that also," Kabir said here while speaking on "Judicial Excellence in Dispensation of Justice."
In his speech earlier, Justice Mukhopadhaya said it was not a 9-5 job and asked the judicial officers to do their homework perfectly so that they could be well prepared in dealing with the next day's work.
Sharing Justice Mukhopadhaya's view point the Chief Justice said judges had the privilege which only the Almighty could do, and that was to judge people.
"And you are a human being with power to sentence a person. So the power that is there has to be exercised in a manner which can only lead to benefit of the litigant and the common man for the justice delivery system," Justice Kabir said.
