The Supreme Court on Wednesday launched the integrated case management system (ICMIS), in a bid to save the environment. The paperless court was flagged off in the presence of the Chief of India, J S Khehar, Law and IT minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The new Supreme Court website can be visited here.

Terming it as “a next generation hybrid database”, the system aims at assisting litigants in accessing data and retrieving information online through a paperless court.



To put forth his point, the PM used the catchphrase: “IT (Information Technology) + IT (Indian Talent) = IT (India Tomorrow)”.



However, the existing Supreme Court website already consists most of the features that the ICMIS will provide information on.

The ICMIS includes next tentative date of listing generated through e-process, categories and acts and section, objections in defective matters, interlocutory application/documents, office reports, listing dates, status of the notice issued, caveat information (if any), earlier court information, judgement/orders, appearance information of accused, and tracking of file movement.

Online office reports will be accessible and available to advocates on record (AORs)and other stakeholders. Other features of ICMIS include an online court fee payment gateway to make things simpler for both the litigant and the registry.

High Court case records will also be accessible through the new software. This will help reduce the repetition of case data entries in the Supreme Court and will give access to digitally signed PDF documents relating to paperbooks/case files. Furthermore, notices will be generated through the system.

ICMIS will also be integrated with the jail/police department, so that in future the requirement of surrender/custody certificates may be given away.

The new system proposes to make things easier for AORs by giving them the option to create a login ID and password on the website to check pending and disposed cases, access scanned documents through OTP and access the cause list (as listed within next week or next month or the entire list in chronological order).

Login IDs and passwords will also be provided to central and state government departments to monitor their cases and to get the scanned copy of the petitions and documents after approval from higher authorities.

The Logical Indian community appreciates the Supreme Court’s efforts to make our judicial system more transparent. We hope that the new ICMIS helps in that endeavour.
