Supreme Court embraces WhatsApp for better access

In a pioneering move, the Supreme Court has announced the integration of its IT services with WhatsApp. This will enable advocates and Advocates on Record (AORs) to receive automated updates on case filings and cause lists instantly.

Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud hailed it as a small step with a big impact, facilitating access to justice even for those in remote areas. The court is also migrating services to NIC’s Meghraj cloud, enabling all courts to go online securely.

Supreme Court Bar Association President Adish Aggarwala welcomed the tech integration, calling it a great bridge to access case information seamlessly. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta termed it another revolutionary initiative by the apex court.

By leveraging instant messaging, the Supreme Court aims to enhance transparency and ensure timely dissemination of crucial legal information, reinforcing its commitment to accessible justice for all citizens across India.
