The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi launched the integrated case management system of the Supreme Court on 10 May 2017 at a function in New Delhi.
The inaugural event was attended by the Chief Justice of India, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and judges of the apex court.
• The Integrated Case Management System will be connected with the Supreme Court website.
• This move is the apex court’s first step towards becoming a paperless, digital court.
• The new digital system will enable the litigants to access their data and retrieve any information required online.
• Chief Justice of India, Jagdish Singh Khehar has proposed to integrate the system with all the 24 high courts and subordinate courts in the country.
• Such a system will help bring in more transparency in the system, reduce manipulation and make the litigant aware about the progress of the case on a real time basis.
• The system will also enable each central and state government department to know if they have been made party to the case and help them prepare accordingly.
• The total fee incurred of the court, as well as the process, would be calculated online itself, which will help the litigant know about the cost involved.
