Event Summary :


ASSOCHAM, an India’s leading Chamber of Commerce has been working for many years, to achieve a business friendly atmosphere in India through legal reforms. ASSOCHAM strongly believes that the investor confidence is directly proportionate to the effective legal systems in a country. ASSOCHAM has been advocating for suitable legal reforms and improvement in judicial delivery system to ensure speedy disposal of commercial cases. Unfortunately India is ranked as 186th country out of 189 countries in enforcement of contracts, by the World Bank. Such a ranking harms the investor confidence and discourage them from investing in India. Hence on 10th of February ASSOCHAM organised a National Conference on "Strengthening Economy Through Judicial Reforms" in which Hon’ble Law Minister of India Mr. Sadananda Gowda was the Chief Guest.

Ravi Shankar Arbitration lawyer & Advocate on Record Supreme court of India prepared a detailed report with information about the present status of the judicial delivery system in India, short term measures to improve the system and long term objectives, which was printed by ASSOCHAM. The Said Report was released by the Hon’ble Law Minister of India Mr. Sadananda Gowda and received by the Former Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court Hon’ble Justice Mr. Mukul Mudgal.
