Abstract
“Justice delayed is justice denied.” But the Indian judiciary is infested with recurrent. Judiciary plays a very important role to deliver justice in any country but if we talk about the judicial system in India then the condition of the judiciary is terrible because in India there are 25 High Courts and many district courts but due to the massive population, a high number of cases are pending in the Indian courts right from the lower court to the Apex court. Because if we see, the Indian court system then we find that all the work is done manually and there is the least use of technology in the court. If we talk about the data then there are three million cases are pending in Indian courts and also 26.3 million cases are pending in lower courts across the country and it is also the lack of the judges.“14.7 judges available to per million people” [1] so that’s why the number of cases increased day by day and it is a burden on our judicial system. And that’s why the cost and inefficiency dealing with the records has up slowly over time and it’s time to think about the technology to bring something new because if we see the efforts of the other agencies like police, jails, accused, witness, pieces of evidence, etc. to bring in the courtroom is very costly and too risky. So, in Indian judiciary is on the use of technology so that manage the case proceeding in the use of the electronic format and this gives a new invention or new idea to the Indian judiciary.
