by The Technical Blogs


In a new initiative, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud on Thursday announced the integration of the Supreme Court’s real-time case data with the National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG) portal, which will provide details of pendency of cases and case types (civil or criminal), year-wise.

The portal will be updated in real time and will also give details of 3-judge, 5-judge, 7-judge cases that are pending before the top court.

The NJDG portal also gives month-and year-wise data on the filing and disposal of cases.

The CJI, while announcing the initiative in the open court before the day’s proceedings began, said, “What we are doing for the High Courts and district courts should also be done for the Supreme Court.”

With today’s initiative, the Supreme Court, too, has come under the National Judicial Data Grid platform that will help in tracking case pendency court-wise. The Supreme Court was till now out of the purview of the NJDG.

Interestingly, the Union Cabinet recently approved the eCourts Project Phase III with a financial outlay of Rs 7,210 crores. Phase-III of the project envisions facilitation of various new features that will prove to be a game changer for the last-mile delivery of justice.

Elaborating on the initiative, the CJI said, “It is a unique platform, which is developed by the NIC and the in-house team of the Supreme Court. Now, at the click of a button, you can see real-time info on pendency of cases, year wise, total pendency of registered and unregistered cases, number of cases decided coram-wise. This is to bring in transparency and accountability. 80,000 cases are pending, 15,000 are not registered yet, so they are not pending yet. We have graphs now, and see, the disposal in July was 5,000-plus cases. Also, we have a distribution as per case type and pendency. Like 583 cases pending before 3-judge benches, and I will soon set up those benches.”
