E-filing to begin in Delhi high court from today

The Delhi high court will take a further step to going paperless after the inauguration of its e-filing facility at 5pm today, in its company and tax jurisdictions.

“Thereafter in both jurisdictions the e-filing of appeals, petitions, counter affidavits, rejoinder affidavits, applications and all documents will take place at the e-filing Centre, Room No.4, Ground Floor, Lawyers' Chambers Block-I, Delhi High Court,” states a notification on the HC’s website.

The Delhi HC first operated India’s debutante e-courtrooms four years ago, according to PTI, which also reported that the court is scheduled to launch its online gate pass registration facility.

Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed, who is heading the court's computer committee, told the PTI that defects found in the petitions and documents filed electronically in PDF format, would be communicated to the petitioners through emails and SMS.

The Delhi HC also launched its first ever Android mobile phone app this month with tabs for accessing its display board, case status, and case history in a one-click functionality on the home screens of users Android phones. Legally India interviewed the advocate brain behind developing the app.
