Gulbarga, Oct 27 (UNI) Corruption and delay in disposal of cases were the main reasons for the people losing their faith in the Institution of Law, Karnataka Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph said.

Inaugurating the permanent Lok Adalath here today, the Chief Justice admitted that as like as other institutions, corruption is existing in the Indian judiciary also.

Referring the comments of Lok Adalat Justice Hegde that eradication of corruption might not possible but it could be controlled, Justice Cyriac felt that corruption would exist in human managed institutions.

He lamented that delay in delivering justice and corruption were the two evils that had brought bad name to the Indian judiciary.

He opined that judges, lawyers and clients were to be sensitised in the issue and especially the litigants should not try to buy justice with money .

He explained that in an effort to dispose cases quickly, six permanent Lok Adalats had been established in the State including Gulbarga.

Emphasising the need for quick disposals of cases, the Chief Justice felt that while disposing cases, quality should be maintained. ''If cases are disposed in a hurry , the quality may be diluted'', he added.
