Delhi HC to turn 50; all set to be technologically driven
Delhi High Court, which will turn 50 on October 31 this year, is all set to explore possibility of using technology including conducting judicial proceedings through tele-presence and 3D in the near future to make the process of administration of justice smoother.
The high court is also heading towards making the judicial process “paperless” and being live-streaming of court proceedings soon with the help of technology, Justice B D Ahmed said while emphasising that “we are trying to keep us updated with the time”.
Addressing reporters ahead of the High Court’s celebration of 50th year of its establishment on October 31 in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be the chief guest, Justice B D Ahmed said audio recording of court proceedings is also on the cards.
“We are exploring the possibility in the near future to have a court system based on tele-presence where a judge and lawyers of parties involved in a matter will be at a far distant place but the proceedings will be conducted through tele-presence,” he said.
