India’s first e-court was on Sunday opened at High Court of Judicature at Hyderabad.
It is the common high court for the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Inaugurating the e-court, Supreme Court judge Justice Madan B Lokur said Telangana and Andhra Pradesh were first two states in the country to be chosen for Integrated Criminal Justice System project.
While noting that the two states made a lot of progress in technology, Justice Lokur said it was one of the reasons for the decision to launch the ICJS, a “system which is going to integrate police stations with the courts, with jails, with the prosecution, and with the forensic science laboratories.”
Justice Lokur, who heads the E-Committee of the Supreme Court, said modalities of the system will be worked out at a meeting scheduled on July 28.
