Judicial accountability is a must. The proceedings of courts should be telecast live, as is done in countries like USA and Canada. Courts should work in a transparent manner. There should also be code of conduct for judges,and judicial employees in the public domain. Simple things like formats of various affidavits, should be on the websites of courts, to make it people-friendly.
