The eCourts project aims to provide a litigant-centric, affordable, accessible, efficient, cost-effective, transparent, and accountable justice delivery system in a time-bound manner. The services under the project cater to all key stakeholders, including the High Courts, the District and Subordinate Courts, and the citizens, litigants, lawyers, and advocates. The automation of Case Management has increased visibility and helps courts in the speedier disposal of cases.

Y.P. Bourney, Director of J&K Judicial Academy, presented the welcome address and gave an overview of the programme. He stated that technology has proven to be a significant accelerant in almost all aspects of human lives, including the dispensation of justice, and e-courts represent a more viable alternative to conventional courts, utilizing technology to facilitate legal proceedings.

He underlined that the primary benefit of e-courts is their accessibility from the remotest location, allowing individuals from far-flung areas or those unable to physically attend court to still avail legal remedies. The first technical session was chaired by Anoop Sharma, who introduced the e-Courts Project and educated advocates about e-initiatives and management tools under e-Courts for advocates. The session covered topics such as e-filing, e-Filing Portal, registration of advocates on the e-filing portal, and the process of e-filing.
