As of now, judicial communication is through telephone, fax, letters and, in some cases, personal interaction. All these have their own weaknesses.
To make the judicial communication faster, The Karnataka High Court has embarked upon an ambitious project to computerise the judicial network in the State. The High Court also wants to introduce data warehousing where all details pertaining to the Karnataka judiciary will be stored. Other plans include digitisation of records, provision of digital signatures and interconnectivity between the High Court and the Advocate-General's office, the Law Department, the Government and the lower courts. Information Technology tools, such as Interactive Voice Response system, touch-screen information kiosks, electronic display boards outside court halls and Web-based systems for subordinate court case status and inquiry are being introduced.
