EXPOSURE IN orissamatters.com JERKS NIC INTO ACTION
Orissa High Court is no more invisible in the net.
This portal had shown how the justice seekers of Orissa were suffering due to lack of transparency in listing of cases and progress thereof.
For elimination of manipulation in listing, which is a strong factor of delay in timely disposal of cases, it was decided to computerize the courts which had started 15 years ago in 1990. The National Informatics Centre (NIC) was given this responsibility. Within these 15 years, it has implemented many applications in computerization of the Supreme Court and several High Courts, which have either direct or indirect beneficial impact on litigants. But it had not carried out the project in respect of Orissa High Court. It was discussed at the following link.
It is a matter of satisfaction for this portal that the NIC has taken our observation seriously and has built up the website of Orissa high Court in the mean time. Now the litigant public as well as the lawyers of Orissa is to enjoy access to judicial lists and verdicts through the Internet.
