As per your query it is understood that you want to know about how the E-Courts and E-Filings operate in India.

The E-Courts Project was conceptualized on the basis of the “National Policy and Action Plan for Implementation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the Indian Judiciary – 2005” submitted by e-Committee, Supreme Court of India with a vision to transform the Indian Judiciary by ICT enablement of Courts.

E-Committee is a body constituted by the Government of India in pursuance of a proposal received from Hon’ble the Chief Justice of India to constitute an e-Committee to assist him in formulating a National policy on computerization of Indian Judiciary and advise on technological communication and management related changes.

The E-Courts Mission Mode Project, is a Pan-India Project, monitored and funded by Department of Justice, Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India for the District Courts across the country.

The objectives of the project are:

To help judicial administration in streamlining their day-to-day activities

To assist judicial administration in reducing the pendency of cases

To provide transparency of information to the litigants

To provide judges with easy access to legal and judicial databases

E-Filing system enables electronic filing of legal papers. Using e-filing, cases (both civil and criminal) can be filed before the High Courts and District Courts that have adopted e-Filing systems. Introduction of e-Filing is aimed at promoting paperless filing and saving time and cost by adopting technological solutions to file cases before courts in India. There are official websites for filing cases in the court under the jurisdiction to entertain your case.

Hope it helps!
