Emphasis to be on paperless system

Efforts were on to make available copies of the Telangana High Court judgements within 24 hours of delivering them, Chief Justice Raghvendra Singh Chauhan said on Thursday.

Addressing the gathering after unfurling the national flag on the HC premises on the occasion of the Independence Day, the CJ said more emphasis was being laid on introducing paperless system through e-filing in HC functioning.

Computerisation was going on in all wings of the HC and soon the lawyers are likely to secure certified copies of the verdicts within one or two days. The same would also be posted online, he said.

New building

While construction of a full-fledged building at Shameerpet on city outskirts for Judicial Complex was on, it was contemplated to construct another building on the HC premises with all facilities for the judges and the lawyers, he said.

The CJ said that a proposal was sent to the Supreme Court to consider enhancing the sanctioned strength of judges in Telangana HC from 24 to 42. He hoped that it would be cleared. Focus was on to clear all the pending cases at the earliest, he said.
