New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday released the Android 2.0 version of its mobile app, which will give justice officers and nodal officers from various union ministries access to view court proceedings in real time.
India’s Chief Justice DY Chandrachud said the mobile app can be downloaded from the Google Play store, while the iOS version will be available within a week.
“Android version 2.0 is available, while iOS will be available within a week. In addition to registered lawyers and advocates, the app will provide exclusive real-time access to all law enforcement officials and nodal officials from various central government ministries. They can see the judicial processes by entering through this application”, said the CJI.
He made the announcement before the start of the workday.
“Law enforcement officers and nodal officers from union ministries can see in real time the status of their filed case, order, sentences, and pipeline of their cases,” said CJI Chandrachud.
The mobile app, which existed previously, granted access to attorneys’ records and lawyers to view court proceedings. It also showed the status of cases, orders, and sentences.
During the pandemic, then-Chief Justice NV Ramana had granted access to some media outlets to allow them to view court proceedings virtually.
