            In addition to above, ICT infrastructure of the Supreme Court and High Court has also been upgraded. A unified national core application software – Case Information System (CIS) software - has been developed and made available for deployment at all computerized courts. The national e-Courts portal (http://www.ecourts.gov.in) has become operational and has been opened for public access through websites of individual districts as well as through the National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG). The portal provides online services to litigants such as details of case registration, cause list, case status, daily orders, and final judgments. Currently, litigants can access case status information in respect of over 5.59 crore pending and decided cases and more than 1.93 crore orders/judgments pertaining to district and subordinate Courts. NJDG data will also help the judiciary in judicial monitoring and management and the Government to get data for policy purposes.

 

            Against the approved cost of Rs.935 crore, Rs.617.35 crore have been released to National Informatics Centre (NIC, the Implementing Agency for Phase I of the Project) upto 30th November, 2015 for the above components of the e-Courts Phase I project for all the states on consolidated basis.

 

            E-filing was taken up in Phase I of the Project, but it is included in Phase II of the Project. The implementation of Phase II commenced on 4th August, 2015.

           

            This information was given by Union Minister of Ministry of Law & Justice, Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.
