The Delhi high court will organize a conference on Saturday to cultivate and spread the idea of e-courts. ‘E-Court: Present and Future’ will jointly by the high court and the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), a government body, take stock of the developments in the existing, paperless e-courts. Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid will be the guest of honour. Besides them, it would be attended by the justices from the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court, judicial officers from the district courts, advocates and government officials.
The conference will include a visit to the Delhi high court and the Karkardooma court to see e-courts in action. The Delhi high court is the first high court in India to take an initiative to establish e-courts at the high-court as well as district-court levels. Within two years, seven e-courts have started functioning at the high court and two at the district-court level.
