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.
