Corona virus has forced courts to rethink on how to function: CJI

NEW DELHI: The corona virus pandemic has forced the courts to rethink on how to function and provided a compulsory training to prepare for a new working environment, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde said on Friday.

The CJI, who was speaking during an online demo of Supreme Court e-filing module, said the system is the first step in the entire process of e-courts and has brought Registry to the chambers of the advocates.

“The pandemic has forced to rethink on how to function and what is essential in judicial process. Real threat came in March and I am happy that the Supreme Court was one of the first institutions to announce that it will not be open in a usual way and function in a restricted manner,” the CJI said.
