Supreme Court goes paperless

Launching a digital database for the Supreme Court, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the country needs technology to make the judiciary more effective and going paperless is also a must to save the environment. “To make the judiciary more effective, use of forensic science and technology is very important... The world is moving very fast and we have to cope up to avoid being left behind,“ Modi said while launching the Integrated Case Management Information System.

The Prime Minister uploaded the ICMIS on the Supreme Court's website at a function in Vigyan Bhawan in the presence of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Chief Justice Khehar said that digital filing of cases would make the judicial system “extremely transparent“ and rule out any manipulation of records.
