HC scores a first with e-court fee system

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday became the first court in the country where e-court fee system has become operational.

While inaugurating the new system, chief minister Sheila Dikshit described it as a major step forward in the direction of modern judicial system and e-governance.

Dikshit said the new system will soon be implemented in all the district courts as early as possible. It is a fully computerised interface by which both the public as well as lawyers can generate court fee receipts through the authorised collection centres.

A single sheet of paper will suffice for any amount of court fee to be generated. The salient features of the new system includes web-based secure system, easy accessibility, faster processing, single court fee receipt of exact denomination irrespective of amount, unique e-court fee receipt number with Bar Code to ensure security of transactions, verification and locking facility available to the court officials.

“The new system will go a long way in making the court paperless, fast, result-oriented and hassle-free,” said Dikshit. “In the second phase of the project, the target is to enable online generation of court-fee stamps by any member of the public or lawyers from anywhere including their homes and offices.”

Chief Justice of Delhi HC D Murugesan said the new system will overcome the difficulties and delays in getting court fee.
