The Government was committed to pan-India roll out of e-Courts by 2014 to deliver quick justice and reduce the backlog of pending cases.
Under the e-Courts Mission Mode Project (MMP), it is proposed to implement ICT in Indian Judiciary in 3 phases over a period of 5 years.
This is imperative and we can’t achieve the goal set for reducing the backlog of pending cases without help of e-Courts.
e-Courts would bring about transparency in the judicial system and help in faster disposal of cases. The e-Court system is more reliable, faster and efficient.
“A data storage and retrieval repository, easily accessible to legal fraternity and common man should be created.
It is the need of the hour to ensure that justice to the common man is not delayed or denied. We need this technology to increase our efficiency.”
e-Courts will be of great help to the judiciary and the common man as court and case management would become easier, delays would be reduced and it would become difficult to mislead litigants.
The MMP aims to develop, deliver, install, and implement automated decision-making and decision-support systems in 700 courts across Delhi, Bombay, Kolkata and Chennai; 900 courts across 29 State/ Union Territory capitals; and 13,000 district and subordinate courts across the nation.
