The e-Committee of the Supreme Court has been overseeing the implementation of the e-Courts Project, conceptualized under the "National Policy and Action Plan for Implementation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the Indian Judiciary-2005". It is the mission mode project carried out by the Department of Justice.

The e-Committee has evolved in terms of its roles and responsibilities over the last fifteen years. The objectives of the e-Committee include:
The Interlinking of all courts across the country.
ICT enablement of the Indian judicial system.
Enhancing judicial productivity.
Making the justice delivery system accessible, cost-effective, transparent, and accountable.
Providing citizen-centric services.

As Phase-II will soon conclude, the draft vision document for Phase III is prepared. This draft Vision Document outlines an inclusive, agile, open, and user-centric vision for courts in Phase III of the e-Courts Project.

Phase III envisions digital courts that deliver justice as a service to all, beyond simply replicating offline processes digitally. The use of technology in the judiciary is therefore guided by two facets central to Gandhian thought—access and inclusion. In addition, the core values of trust, empathy, sustainability, and transparency provide the guardrails for achieving the founding vision.

Building over the advancements made in Phases I & II of the project, this document articulates the need to exponentially advance the digitization of courts by (a) simplifying procedures, (b) creating a digital infrastructure, and the (c) establishment of the right institutional and governance framework, such as technology offices at various levels to enable the judiciary to appropriately employ technology. It articulates key goals for putting in place the digital infrastructure and services for Phase III.

This vision document envisions a platform architecture for technology that will enable diverse digital services to further evolve over time at scale. It also is designed to take an ecosystem approach that leverages the existing capacities in different stakeholders such as civil society leaders, universities, practitioners, and technologists to realise this future.

The e-Committee, Supreme Court of India has called for comments, suggestions, and inputs on the draft vision document for its 3rd phase of the e-Courts Project from all its stakeholders to refine and plan the implementation of the next phase of the e-Courts Project.

To get best E-courts in the country we need a best software to handle the load and to prepare a team of people expert in handling work related to web. The best way to start will be at grass root level not in city but from villages where knowledge of law is not at par.
Biggest problem with any system to work effectively every time is that there is no person to give quick remedies for the problem faced. We may make this but due to any error the person gets disconnected a third person should be in

Every village to have access to legal aid.Fresh graduates to be deployed to villages for 6 months in the name of internship under the guidance of senior advocates. When we have got something from the society, we should give back to the society this way. After this internship, the law graduates should be enrolled for practice. Anyways the judiciary is going to be digitised. Make use of young population and provide legal services to each and every village. collaboration with anganvadi will be good

Standardize Documents & Processes through Parliament Law - such as Tenant Model Law. Now, every state government has their own law.

Business transactions should have standard template and set of Documents.

Judgement can be given based on Set of documents submitted in a single sitting without any lawyers - Judgement based on documents submitted.

Computerisation is NOT Digital Courts

"Digital Transformation" means
~ Looking at User(lawyer, common man, judge etc) interaction with Court system
~ Optimising process with "Design Thinking"
~ Use right technology (location, sensor, AI etc) to optimize experience

UPI & IndiaStack great example in Finance Sector.UPI is World's Best Payment System with ZERO cost transactions within seconds

Can we have JudicialStack based on "Design Thinking" & IndiaStack (

सादर नमस्कार
महोदय भारतीय कानून व्यवस्था एक तरफ सामान्य जन को प्रेरित और गर्व का अनुभव करती है इसमें कोई दो मत नहीं है पर वही इसकी पेंचीदगी और लम्बी जटिल कानूनी प्रक्रिया के करण पीढ़ी दर पीढ़ी के लोग खप- मर जाते है फिर भी आम नगरीकों को कोई समस्या का समाधान नहीं मिल पता है l कानूनी प्रक्रिया में सबसे लम्बी प्रक्रिया के तौर पर जमीन से जुड़ी समस्या है l इस समस्या समाधान के लिए अधिकतम 2 वर्षों का समय दिया जाना चाहिए l
