India is fast embracing the concept of digitization as we have realised that digitization is the way forward. In a country like ours where people are plagued with paperwork, running from pillar to post getting work done just adds on to our woes. In order to expedite the course of justice delivery, digitization of the Indian legal system needs to be brought about.
There is a huge backlog of cases and ushering in a paperless digitized wave, will increase the efficiency of the legal system. The e-Courts mission of the Central Government aims at reducing pendency of court cases, digitizing court records, increasing efficiency, using human resources effectively, making judgments available online for the common man among other things.
In the wake of the Digital India initiative, the Central Government has also introduced the concept of LIMBS, which is an online platform aiming at digitizing the court process. There has been a remarkable change in the way the legal system was perceived a decade ago and the transition from typewriters to digitized tools is remarkable and it is here to stay.
There are lot many anomalies in the current legal system and there is a serious need for things to be streamlined. Paperwork needs to give way to a more technological approach. Digitizing the legal system will eliminate the problem of storage of documents. Successful automation of court procedures will alleviate the burden on available human resources. Indian courts are inundated with cases and the pendency is on a all time high, a proper system in place is very imperative.
