BANGALORE : Justice A N Venugopala Gowda on Wednesday inaugurated an e-library facility on the High Court (HC) premises. Speaking on the occasion, he said the HC was extensively working on the project to introduce paperless courts. The project of paperless courts is in its final stage and will be implemented soon, he said. He said courts will be made paperless using advanced technology to digitise its transactions to help litigants and advocates. “Everything will be computerised. This system will help advocates to file pleadings and access documents from their chambers,” Justice Gowda said. He said, at first, two courts will be made paperless in the state.
He said libraries help advocates to understand law and added, “If advocates are not ready to read, it is better for them quit practice.” The newly inaugurated e-library will house past Supreme Court orders, access to journals and other law-related works.
