HYDERABAD: The High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad for the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh has created a history of sorts by becoming the first court in the country to set up an e-court.

Supreme Court Justice Madan B Lokur inaugurated the first ever e-Court at the High Court premises here on Sunday.

“E-Courts (paperless courts) will ensure easy and better access to justice for public and will also provide solution for large number of pending cases in the country,” said Justice Madan B Lokur, who is the incharge of e-Committee of SC.

According to him, e-Court will ensure easy and better access to justice for people and will also make the work of judges, advocates and all those related with judiciary a lot more effective.

“E-Court system is extremely user friendly and soon an e-Court will be set up even at Supreme Court. People are asking more and more questions to us and we have to gear up to face the future challenges by integrating and engaging technology in judiciary,” said Justice Madan Lokur.

Giving examples of digitising case records and video conferencing, the benefits accrued from introduction of technology in judicial process, the Supreme Court judge said in future all courts will be turned into e-Courts and urged judicial officers to gear up for the change.

Acting Chief Justice of High Court Dilip Bhosale said efforts are being made to set up e-Courts even at all other courts in Hyderabad and also in various district courts.

“Digitisation of records will be completed in a year and we are also actively taking steps to introduce e-filing of cases from June 2017,” added Chief Justice Bhosale.
