In this article, we will discuss Digitisation of Judiciary (Steps to Promote). So, let’s get started.

Digitisation of Judiciary (Steps to Promote)

  • Role of Judges and Lawyers: Political will and the support of judges and lawyers are necessary for the digitisation process to succeed.
  • The need of the hour is for them to be made aware of the associated technologies and receive adequate training.
  • Conducting training sessions to familiarise the Judges with the e-courts framework and procedure can give a huge impetus to the successful running of e-courts.
  • Virtual Hearing in Certain Cases: Virtual hearings cannot be a substitute for physical court hearings in all cases.
  • However, in certain categories of cases as identified by the court administration, virtual hearing should be made mandatory.
  • Regulation of Technology Usage: As the technology grows, concerns about data protection, privacy, human rights and ethics will pose fresh challenges and hence, will require great self-regulation by developers of these technologies.
  • It will also require external regulation by the legislature through statute, rules, regulation and by the judiciary through judicial review and constitutional standards.
  • Training: The government must make dedicated efforts in the training of personnel to maintain all the e-data.
  • These include maintaining proper records of e-file minute entries, notification, service, summons, warrants, bail orders, order copies, e-filing etc. for ready references.
  • Creating awareness about e-courts and technologies in the judiciary through seminars can help bring to light the facilities and the ease that such initiatives can facilitate
