Be it a case of forgery, dowry, land tenant problems, accidents or any other matter requiring legal intervention, one has to approach the legal luminaries whose base is advocates. In a busy and bustling city like Delhi it is very frequent that people get into trouble for which legal action is required. In such fast paced life it is essential to have adequate knowledge about the procedures and processes to file complaints and proceed in a lawful way. Since all of us have not read the law thus taking help of Delhi advocates becomes impertinent.
Advocates in Delhi are responsible for maintaining the code of law and look after the aggrieved. In their forward march towards transforming justice delivery system and making it paperless and hassle free, the Delhi High Court has recently launched the e-court fee system. The new e-fee court system at the Delhi high court premises allows cutting off the difficulty and delaying in filing cases. This has been made possible by the unending endeavor by Government of Delhi and the Computer Committee of Delhi High Court. The computer committee of Delhi high court is headed by Justice B.D. Ahmed. The committee in 2008 had launched a project in cooperation with Delhi Government in order to make the abode of Delhi advocates an electronic court. This was done to ensure reduction in use of paper and thereby making filing and disposal of cases far easier.
Advocates or barristers are the pillar of justice and fairness. The recent e-court fee system will make it easier for justice seekers to approach the courts. Also further progress is on to allow the litigants and advocates of Delhi to file for court fee stamps online. This will curtail the long queues which develop in the premises in order to collect the court fee stamps. Now with the new system in place one can in future buy court fee stamps from anywhere and anytime.
Further for the ease of Delhi advocates the plan is to introduce the system in capital’s district courts. This will also require full cooperation of the Delhi government which under the able leadership of Sheila Dikshit is fully ensured. This is so as the government also is looking focused on its agenda to maximize use of computers in administration.
The present Delhi high court chief Justice D. Murugesan was also praiseworthy of the government cooperation in the e-facility system. He was particularly noteworthy of the fact that the system is fail proof and it cannot be tampered with or counterfeited. Also the system is flawlessly customer-friendly. Security is ensured as the moment the litigant files for court fee and the payment is made, a receipt with a unique number is issued. This number is affixed with bar code which at the time of registry can be verified for applying petition. The number is locked as soon as the verification is done. This eliminates the remotest possibility of the reuse of the number.
Advocates of High Court can make the payment through cheque or draft or pay order. They can also use the RTGS system once the system is uploaded online. RTGS stands for Real Time Gross Settlement. RTGS system is a funds transfer mechanism wherein inter bank payment settlements are done through centralized banking system.
