NEW DELHI: In a bid to save the environment, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday launched the Supreme Court’s integrated case management system, which makes it a paperless court.
PM Narendra Modi today launched the integrated case management system of the Supreme Court in the presence of the Chief Justice of India, Jagdish Singh Khehar.
The system will help litigants access data and retrieve information online. The new system will be a step towards making the proceedings of the Supreme Court paperless.
Speaking on the occasion, CJI Jagdish Singh Khehar said he proposes to integrate the system with all the 24 high courts and the subordinate courts across the country. It will help usher transparency, reduce manipulation and help the litigant know about the progress of the case on a real time basis, he said.
Every central and state government department will know if they have been made a party to the case and it will help them prepare accordingly. The court fee and process fee will be calculated online, which will help the litigant about the cost involved. Justice Khehar said it will help the bar council and will not increase its workload.
