Integrated Case Management Information System on the Supreme Court
Highlights of Integrated Case Management Information System
With digital filing, the litigant would be required to file just the grounds of appeal to the Supreme Court and the system will automatically retrieve other documents pertaining to the case from the concerned High Court.
This would effectively mean doing away with bulky paperbook, as large annexures, judgments etc. would now be retrieved electronically and the parties would not be required to file the same in hard copy in Supreme Court.
Besides, the parties to the case will be updated regularly about the status of the case, court fees needed for filing, delay etc.
The new filing facility is expected to be active when the court re-opens after summer vacation.
