THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Taking a stride ahead in ensuring transparency in court procedures and convenience of litigants, Kerala Administrative Tribunal (KAT) went global on the World Wide Web.

The newly-launched website of KAT - www.keralaadministrativetribunal.gov.in and a kiosk, which are intended to provide details and clarity of court procedures, will offer wide range of services to litigants and advocates.

KAT chairman Justice K Balakrishnan Nair inaugurated the official website and kiosk of the Tribunal on Saturday. He assured that KAT would ensure better services to its beneficiaries.

By recording the procedures and details of cases, from the stage of filing to disposal in a centralised server, the system developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC) here would enable the users to track the case status and retrieve information on litigations.

NIC created the website and a web-based software Case information System of Kerala Administrative Tribunal (CISKAT) which allow the employees of KAT to update case related files and documentations in an open source server which would be available on the website.

It offers options to search the case lists of KAT, case status, judgments, cases filed and advocates concerned.

NIC has also integrated a short message notification system to the web-based CISKAT application which alerts litigants and advocates about the date of court proceedings through mobile phones.

Meanwhile, KAT member Mathew C Kunnumkal mentioned that the website should be dynamically updated. He said that computerisation of KAT had reduced the workload of its employees and increased the percentage of case disposal.

“Soon we will touch 10,000 disposals. Now our efforts are to improve efficiency,” Mathew said.

After the inception of KAT in 2011, 9,787 cases regarding State Government service were transferred from the High Court to KAT and 7,827 cases were filed. KAT disposed of 8,441 cases till date, out of which 5,583 cases were originally filed in KAT and 2,858 were transferred cases.
