The Delhi High Court will be launching e versions of the court, say reports. Delhi’s e-court will begin functioning by December. The move to digitize the court is to save time, as well as paper. The proceedings will largely reduce the use of paper, as most of the data will be documented in CDs or USB storage devices.
The proceedings will be recorded online, and the judges will be able to watch it live through video conferencing. Lawyers can also view the proceedings through laptops or computers, which will help reduce the burden of carrying heavy case files. The data will be available on the website, making it accessible to anyone.
Justice B.D. Ahmad, who is in charge of the project, says that they will also consider making the payment of court fees and filing of reports via the Internet.
