Over the past decade, the Indian judiciary has ushered in an era of significant digitisation under the flagship E-courts Mission Mode Project (e-courts project), a cog in the Indian government’s larger wheel of e-governance. The e-courts project has been pivotal in augmenting institutional efficiency within the judiciary through the integration of information and communication technologies. Under this project, a majority of Indian courts today have access to basic and advanced computing hardware. Additionally, many new software programmes have been designed by the National Informatics Centre to bring online the judiciary’s significant chunk of diurnal ­administrative work. As a result, litigants and lawyers have ready and almost immediate access to court orders and judgments, real time updates of case status, e-filing facilities and numerous other amenities, easing and improving the overall access to justice.
