Data relating to cases to be computerised

V.S. Palaniappan

To help administrative heads take timely action


Focus is on cases in which District Collectors are respondents

All departments will be covered later



Coimbatore: Data on litigations will soon be computerised to bridge the communication gap between legal representatives and administrators, Commissioner for e-Governance Neeraj Mittal told The Hindu.

It will help stop incidents of court rulings going against the Government just because of it going unrepresented or failing to file a counter.

This often resulted in an ex-parte ruling or in a stay enjoyed by the opposite party either becoming permanent or in getting extended.

This often benefited the opposite parties at the cost of the State.

The process of collecting data relating to various cases involving Government departments is on. Any authorised person – the heads of departments concerned, legal representatives of the Law Department such as Government Pleader or Public Prosecutor – can update the case records as and when required.

This will enable the authorities to follow up, track periodically and even flag the cases, if necessary, to ensure follow up action is taken at regular intervals.

At the click of a mouse, the administrative head would be able to find out the finer details of a particular case, its status or even the total number of litigations and their current status.

The software developed six months ago is in testing stage.

Cases in which the District Collectors are respondents will be handled in the first stage.

Then the software will be modified so that every department is brought under it. The project will be implemented in five districts covered under e-Governance. It will soon be extended to all the districts, Mr. Mittal says.
