On 25th September 2018, Tuesday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court with the aim of making the legal system more litigant friendly has launched a series of initiatives, which includes environment-friendly process and will help in easy and speedy disposal of cases for people.
The measures taken were issued by the Chief Krishna Murari.
The list of initiatives are as follows:
- Adopting the New Paperless System - The new e-payment module has been introduced which will help in easily accessing the certified copies and inspections etc. The system has made it easy for a person to transfer payments by way of debit card/credit cards or through net banking. The newly introduced measures also include the printing for both sides of the pleadings in the court. This would approximately save around 1.50 crore of papers every year. Earlier, one side printing caused a bundle of documents and was obviously resulting in excessive paper use which was ultimately harming the nature. Also, the need of filing the record of Writ Petition in letters patent appeal as accordingly dispensed resulting in saving around 2.50 lakh papers every year. Now, there will be digital measures used to notify about the receipts, known as e- receipts which will be sent through SMS on the registered mobile number of the applicant.
- For Speedy Disposal of Cases - Three Special benches have been constituted for speedy disposal of murder cases seeking confirmation of Capital punishment pending in the High Court. The list of these three special benches are as follows:
i. Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill
ii. Justice AB Chaudhari and Justice Surinder Gupta
iii. Justice Ranjan Gupta and Justice Raj Shekhar Attri
- New IT Methods Adopted by the Court - The head of Computer Committee Justice Rajesh Bindal has allowed the facility of online application for supply of certified copies. Now, the certified copies of orders will be delivered to the applicant’s residence by the way of speed post. Allowing online application of certified copies will save the time of the applicant which earlier was consumed in standing in the long queue. In addition to this, the facility is also available for the orders of District Courts as well. This will really help the general public in staying updated about the court proceedings and the status of their respective case. The information can be accessed from around 12,000 Common Service Centres in the State. Also, through the recently launched mobile application for High Courts, a person may easily avail the information about his case.
Undoubtedly, this step towards the revolution of technology in the legal industry would help a lot of people who are not able to move to the court or who miss any information. These Mobile applications will surely make legal proceedings easily accessible for a person and are going to be environment-friendly as well.
