The Delhi High Court is all set to go high-tech as its premises is soon going to get a wi-fi facility.
"We have identified 10 hot spots where the instruments would be put in place so that lawyers and others could have wireless internet access in the court premises without facing any glitches", Delhi High Court Bar association's president K C Mittal said.
Apart from wi-fi, all the lawyer chambers will soon be connected through intercom and lawyers could contact their colleagues by just dialling the concerned chamber number, he said.
"MTNL is working on the projects and we hope that at the end of this month wi-fi would be functional and all the chambers would be connected through intercom," Mittal said, adding that he has been consulting various authorities to implement an e-filing system so that petitions could be filed through internet.
Mittal said steps were also being taken to spruce up the security in the court complex in view of the recent terrorist attacks on court premises in different parts of the country.
"Security is a major concern for us and it is also being spruced up with scanning machines being set up at the gates so that unwanted elements could be prevented from entering the court premises," he said, adding that a railway reservation counter was also being set up inside the court premises.
