In a bid to promote litigant-friendly court system the CJI launched a host of smartphone apps including
e-filing to help litigants and convicts in filing cases and make e-payments to courts from any part of the country.
e-filing of cases in SC
These apps will do away the need for physical presence of litigants and lawyers by enabling them to file cases and submit
documents online in the apex court.
Now various fine, penalty and court fees can be submitted online through e-payment application, and summons will
be available on mobile phones.
The mobile apps are expected to provide services like e-filing with user manual, e-payment options, National Service and
Tracking of Electronic Processes (NTSEP), Supreme Court Legal Services Committee and awareness guide for services
offered by the e-courts programme.
These apps will be crucial in preventing pendency to bring justice to the litigant, by reducing the years long burden of
suffering and monetary loss for them.
16,000 plus district and taluka courts would be connected by these apps to save the over 1,600 crore rupees while
reducing the pendency by 25 to 30 per cent.
