"We need to have more transparency and the citizens of India deserve proper access to justice and transcription services are a very important addition that is needed in our legal system" - Amrish Kilachand
MUMBAI, India (PRWEB) June 28, 2018
Well known businessman Amrish Kilachand, who is a member of one of the richest Gujarati business families in Mumbai, has filed an intervention application in the Supreme Court of India - (Case No. 18220-2018) - to move the court to approve transcription services for all courtrooms in India, similar to what they have in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and other developed nations.
Kilachand who attended university in the United States and has a degree in Business Administration said that he believed the Indian courts needed to modernize their processes to come into the 21st century.
"We need to have more transparency and the citizens of India deserve proper access to justice and transcription services are a very important addition that is needed in our legal system," stated Kilachand when asked for comment at his Mumbai residence.
The original Petition, in which Kilachand has filed as an intervenor, was filed by one of India's best-known lawyers, Ms. Indira Jaising.
Ms. Jaising is an Indian lawyer who is noted for her legal activism in promoting human rights causes. In her Petition, she has requested that in cases of national importance, which are heard in the Supreme Court of India, be live-streamed so that the public knows what is happening on major issues that impact citizens in the world's largest democracy.
