New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is participating in the presence of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud at the Supreme Court’s Constitution Day celebrations. Since 2015, November 26 has been marked as Constitution Day to remember the adoption of the Constitution of India by the Constituent Assembly in 1949.
The Prime Minister will introduce a number of fresh measures for the e-court project during the programme. By enabling courts with ICT, the project aims to offer services to litigants, lawyers, and the judiciary. The Prime Minister is launching a number of initiatives, including the S3WaaS websites, the JustIS mobile app 2.0, the Virtual Justice Clock, and the Digital Court. His office was quoted in a statement as saying:
PM Modi shared a tweet along with a video before the event: “Today, on Constitution Day, we honour the greats who created our Constitution and reaffirm our dedication to realising their goals for our country.”
While the JustIS Mobile App 2.0 is a tool available to judicial officers for effective court and case management by monitoring the pendency and disposition of not only his court but also individual judges working under them, the Virtual Justice Clock is described as an initiative to display vital statistics of the justice delivery system at the court level by providing details of cases instituted, cases disposed of, and the pendency of cases.
According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s office, the digital court programme aims to give judges access to court documents in digitised form in order to facilitate the move to paperless courts.
