The PIB reports that the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs on September 16, approved an amount of Rs. 935 crore ($207 million) as the revised cost estimate for implementing the E-Courts project in
I wonder how will they use this fund, when there are many unwilling horses for the e-court project. The Delhi High Court was the first to endorse the project and launched its first e-court in Dec\'09 and the second in Jan\'10. Almost one past, now there has been no new e-court. The Bar showcased high excitement levels on the launch of the project, but has hardly taken initiative towards efiling, only a handful of lawyers do that.Lawyers need to change their mindset and start filing in e-format, information for this purpose is availble at the high court. This project is very ambitious and will prove to be a boon, for the judiciary which is facing a real problem of storing the paper files. The system is also very easy to operate and and saves the judge a lot of time, which he/she would otherwise spend in locating documents, etc. in paper files. Needles, to say it is also eco-friendly, in the age of global warming.
finally some progress, it\'s a good thing that along with everything else, the law and judiciary wing is also becomming techno savvy and developing in a useful way. just hope that all the above mentioned advantages are actually used, or it will be another rs.935 crores down the drain. also, if it is that efficient, it should be used as soon as possible.
