Necessity is the mother of Invention.
The Delhi HC recently inaugurated the e-filing facility allowing advocates and litigants the liberty to be able to file applications, documents, reply and rejoinder from anywhere and anytime online. It can be availed for all types of cases and is not restricted to only tax, arbitration and company matters like before. The e-filing is a part of the High Court’s ongoing effort to quickly adapt itself to a difficult situation that has arisen because of the coronavirus pandemic. It will also help in decreasing the footfall in the court premises which is very crucial today. The e-filing software is a comprehensive application, which provides for paperless processing of cases from the stage of filing until the disposal. The integration of the electronic court-fee module is an added feature of the e-filing system.
The e-filing process is indeed a revolutionary step in the present times, and shall be incorporated by courts of other jurisdictions as well.
