Tech advantage

With regard to “Tech-orientation required for bankers: Shubhalakshmi Panse” ( Business Line, April 9), every organisation must constantly update its technological platform to provide better quality service to its customers.

In today's competitive environment, if one isn't tech-savvy, one feels at a disadvantage.

It is true that there is a lot of duplication of ATMs in cities.

One can find at least two-three ATMs of different banks installed in just one building.

While there is a need to restructure the ATMs of banks located in metros, freeing up resources to that extent and utilising them for compelling priorities, installation of ATMs in rural areas, as a part of the financial inclusion programme that is gaining ground, is welcome.

Disposal of cases

The Supreme Court's exercise to frame guidelines for media reporting on sub judice matters is not so urgent as tackling the inordinate delay in disposal of cases. People are very much affected by the delayed delivery of justice.

The apex court should immediately direct its subordinate courts to dispose cases within a time-frame.

Simple cases in civil matters are dragging on for long periods. If boundary disputes in land cases are taken to court, it takes the courts years to appoint a commissioner to do the demarcation of lands or fix the boundary. What can be done in months drags on for years.

Courts should wake up before people's faith in the judiciary dries up.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court's attempt to frame guidelines in reporting must open the eyes of the media. Media should give no room for the judiciary to step in.

This is possible only if the media, both electronic and print, act with responsibility.
