Moving closer towards making the court proceedings completely paperless, the Punjab and Haryana High Court would soon start filing of cases through e-mail.Now,the lawyers and the litigants would not be required to visit the court premises with bulky files to deposit the hard copies of the documents pertaining to the cases.Chairman of e-governance and computer committee,Justice Hemant Gupta, confirmed this on Wednesday while launching a newly developed Case Management System (CMS) which acts as e-diary for the advocates.

As of now,the lawyers of the High Court have to file the hard copy of the petition in the Registry office. The soft copies of the cases are accepted through pen drive or CD only if the cases are related to tax matters or petitions for protection of runaway married couples seeking protection from family or relatives.With the proposed facility of e-filing of petition lawyers would be able to file their petition through e-mails from their chamber or office.Case Management System acts as e-diary for the advocates to automatically collate their cases and fetch information about each case regarding date of hearing, name of bench, case status.
