The NCLT, New Delhi has issued a notice informing that it is at advanced stages of e-filing.

The latest notice by the NCLT New Delhi is a step towards integrating into the system of e-filing. The Registrar has asked all parties to file soft copies along with hard copies with effect from August 27, 2018.

Last year, the Prime Minister had also launched the Integrated Case Management Information System on the Supreme Court website, which marked the introduction of digital filing.

The usage of e-filing facility has been slowly gaining momentum. Reportedly, until last year it was only the Supreme Court and four other High Courts that were allowing e-filing of cases with the court.

The Supreme Court ecommitee in association with the Department of Justice last year had also held a conference with an aim to extend this facility to all other high courts and district courts.

Just last week, CJI Dipak Misra launched an app which allows e-filing, helping  litigants and lawyers file cases and submit documents online in the apex court, thus doing away with the need for physical presence.
