He also cited the need to adopt online analysis of legal cases, and emphasized on disseminating judicial knowledge to the common man. This, Shri Modi stated, could be achieved by promoting a special judicial TV channel or having a weekly session through the electronic media, wherein cases and their verdicts are shared. He further opined that this way we could develop a perfect counselling system.

Shri Modi highlighted the significance of having a policy-driven government and how this could be an effective way of decreasing discrimination and thereby lowering the scope for litigation. He added that only good governance could ensure a policy-driven government, and this in turn, would promote delivery of quality justice.
