PM Narendra Modi has praised Chief Justice of India Dr. DY Chandrachud regarding the National Judicial Data Grid.
Now the common man will be able to know about the cases pending in the Supreme Court, the court orders and the date of the trial. This has been possible with the National Judicial Data Grid. Till now, district courts and high courts across the country were connected to it. Now the Supreme Court has also joined this. National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG) has completed its first and important phase.
At present, more than 18735 courts of the country have been connected to it. Meaning, any person can now know the pendency of the courts. Decisions of your cases etc. can also be seen. In this way, it can be said that even in the judicial system hidden behind the scenes till now, such a transparent system has been implemented which will provide satisfaction to the common people.
How to get benefit of National Judicial Data Grid
With the implementation of NJDG, the entire judicial system has become online. Now any person can know how many cases are pending in the country. He can also know what was the verdict in his case or what was the order given by the court during the hearing? What is the next date? It started many years ago. Gradually the project progressed and now it has reached its final stage, which means the Supreme Court also came under its purview.
You will also get updates on routine orders
This decision of Chief Justice of India Dr. DY Chandrachud has also been appreciated by PM Narendra Modi. The idea is that court decisions and even routine orders should be updated here on a daily basis. This is also happening. It should be hoped that wherever mistakes are taking place, things will pick up pace. Because now it will be difficult for any judge to hide what is going on in his case? Now any observer sitting inside the system will be able to see it.
How many courts are needed in the country, it will be known
The biggest advantage of its implementation will be that by mapping the courts, it will be easier to find out how many courts are actually required in the country. This means that whenever the central and state governments want to take policy decisions, they will get help. The World Bank has praised this Indian project in its initial days. Land disputes are a big problem in the country. It takes a lot of time to dispose of them.
More than 4.44 crore cases pending
He said, through the website related to NJDG, I am able to see that at present more than 4.44 crore total cases are pending in various courts in the country. Of these, 1.10 crore cases are of civil matters and 3.33 crore cases are of criminal cases. The same website is telling that 2.75 crore cases are pending in the courts in the last one year. Of these, there are more than two crore criminal and more than 66 lakh civil cases. 98771 cases are pending for more than 30 years. More than five lakh cases are pending for 20 to 30 years. The more you search on the website, the smallest information will be found here.
