New Delhi, Mar 16 (ILNS) Taking a cue from the Digital India campaign of the Central government, the Supreme Court today launched a web-based software for making available the certified copies of SC verdicts and proceedings on its website www.sci.gov.in.
The e-Copying software will facilitate entitled stakeholders to get such copies, as admissible, under Supreme Court Rules, 2013 and A Handbook on Practice and
Procedure and Office Procedure, 2017.
The software will facilitate doorstep and contactless delivery of certified copies of Supreme Court judgements and proceedings, making it convenient for the stakeholders to assess such copies from the comfort of their homes.
The launch of this e-copying software does not envisage change in existing Rules, but provides for an additional online mechanism to apply for certified copies.
The stakeholders can apply for Certified Hard Copies of the Supreme Court Judgements and proceedings by making online payments of the required copying charges and postal fees, (if needed), through the e-Copying software itself and the certified copies will be delivered at the postal address of the applicant.
The same can also be received at designated physical counters of the Registry. It will also facilitate online application for an e-authenticated copy.
The first authenticated copy will be provided through email free of cost to the entitled stakeholders as per existing Rules. The user will also be notified by SMS and email about the status and progress of the request so made on the online module. A user guide is also available at the website.
Notwithstanding the launch of online e-Copying software, the current practice to obtain certified or unauthenticated copies as per provisions of the Supreme Court Rules and A Handbook on Practice and Procedure and Office Procedure, 2017 will continue to remain in practice.
