The State of West Bengal, revealed plans to modernise the case monitoring system of its legal department in a bid to address inefficiencies in several paper-based administrative processes.

 

According to an official statement, because of the paper-based system officials reported that they have been dealing with issues such as misplaced documents, and instances when government officials and lawyers fail to show up in court, leading to the court passing a judgement in favor of the petitioner.

 

As response to this, the National Informatics Centre will be helping the State to move away from its paper-based “predicament” by rolling out a software-based system to monitor all cases and dispose pending cases as early as possible.

 

“The state government is going to start a software based court case monitoring system so that they can properly handle cases that are filed against the state government. Moreover it will help to quickly dispose of pending cases and for that the state government is taking the help of the NIC,” said an official of the state legal department.
