MP high court

Details of the pending cases in Madhya Pradesh high court will be available online soon.

Unveiling the state government’s plan on Wednesday, HC principal registrar Manohar Mamtani said the initiative has been taken to make the court proceedings easily accessible to the people.

In all 2.5 lakh cases are pending in the MP high court.

Addressing a press conference, Mamtani said the judicial content will be available on the website in Hindi also, so that more and more people can understand the proceedings.

He said the high court’s initiative was appreciated at national level and a proposal for introducing it in other states has been also initiated by the law department.

“To clear the backlog of pending cases, sequence of hearing will be oldest to newest. A magistrate of high court is assigned with 150 cases each day. Those cases which will remain unheard on allotted date would be heard the next day. The software will automatically update the status and unheard case will be given priority,” said Mamtani.

For those who don’t have internet facility, kiosks have been established on the court premises at Jabalpur, Gwalior and Indore. One can even take printout of important documents regarding their case from these kiosks.

Copy of the judgment will also be made available soon on the website. One has to make online payment for that.

Work is in progress to provide facility to file petition online in the high court and soon the facility will be available.

Planning to introduce E-adalat facility under which hearings will be also conducted online is also in process. Jails of the state are being also connected through internet so that statements of jail inmates can be recorded through video conferencing.

Stepping ahead towards third and fourth generation courts in the state, it was also announced in the press conference that the newly proposed court halls in Rewa, Jabalpur and Indore district will have all the high-tech facilities.
