Convergence of technology and the judicial system was cited as the need-of-the-hour by Shri Modi, while addressing a large gathering of legal experts who had come from across the country. Calling for the need to go digital, Shri Modi emphasized on making online as many activities as possible.

Affirming the need for mapping of the litigations, through the combined efforts of universities and social scientists, Shri Modi said that bringing about a transformation in the judicial system was required. He also cited the need to adopt online analysis of legal cases, and emphasized on disseminating judicial knowledge to the common man.
