Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a slew of initiatives under the e-court project when he will be attending the Constitution Day celebrations in the Supreme Court in New Delhi on Saturday.
The project aims at providing better services to litigants, lawyers and the judiciary through ICT-enabled courts. These include virtual justice clock, JustIS mobile App 2.0, digital court and S3WaaS websites.
The virtual justice clock is an initiative to exhibit vital statistics of the justice delivery system at the court level with the details of the cases instituted, cases disposed and pendency of cases on a day/week/month basis at the court level.
The effort is expected to make the functioning of the courts accountable and transparent by sharing with the public the status of disposed cases. The public can have access to the virtual justice clock of any court establishment on the District Court’s website.
JustIS Mobile App 2.0 is a tool available to judicial officers for effective court and case management by monitoring the pendency and disposal of not only his court but also individual judges working under them. This App is also made available to high court and Supreme Court judges who can now monitor the pendency and disposal of all the states and districts under their jurisdiction.
The digital court is an initiative to make the case records available to the judge in digitised form to enable the transition to paperless courts.
Similarly, S3WaaS Website is a framework to generate, configure, deploy and manage websites for publishing specified information and services related to district judiciary.
S3WaaS is a cloud service developed for government entities to generate Secure, Scalable & Sugamya (Accessible) websites. It is multilingual, citizen-friendly and divyang (physically challenged)-friendly.
