Soon after becoming the Prime Minister of the largest democracy, we have seen PM Modi taking bold and progressive decisions for the betterment of the nation. We have seen ISRO launching a number of satellites, a number of missiles being tested and developed among many other achievements.
Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the integrated case management system of the Supreme Court which is the first step taken by the government towards becoming paperless and digital courts. On this occasion, Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar was also present at the inauguration ceremony. The new system will help the lawyers to access data and retrieve information online.
Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar said that it will soon end the practice of filing voluminous case records and a reduction in bulky paper books which is also an eco-friendly initiative. The Supreme Court has decided to collect all such records electronically from lower courts and High Courts so that there is no requirement to file printed copies in the Supreme Court.
At the inauguration ceremony, Chief Justice Khehar said he plans to integrate the system with all the 24 High courts and the subordinate courts.
“It will help usher transparency, reduce manipulation and help the litigant know about the progress of the case on a real time basis.”
The court fee and process fee will be calculated online, which will enlighten the litigant about the cost involved. Justice Khehar said it will help the bar and decrease its workload.
The function was also attended by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and other Supreme Court judges.
