Winner Announcement for Logo design contest for Virtual Courts

22 Jun 2022

 

Virtual Courts is a concept, aimed at eliminating the presence of litigants or lawyer in the court and for adjudication of cases on a virtual platform. The concept has been evolved in order to efficiently utilize court resources and to provide litigants with an effective avenue to settle petty disputes.

Virtual Court can be administered by a Judge over a virtual electronic platform whose jurisdiction may extend to the entire State and function 24X7. Neither litigant nor Judge would have to physically visit a court for effective adjudication and resolution. Communication would only be in electronic form and sentencing and a further payment of fine or compensation would also be accomplished online. Thus, precious judicial time and manpower will be saved.

As on 01.06.2022, there are 20 such courts in 16 States / UTs viz. Delhi (2), Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala (2), Maharashtra (2), Assam, Chhattisgarh, Jammu and Kashmir (2), Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Tripura and West Bengal.

Facility is provided for Litigants to file the plaint electronically through e-Filing and pay the Court Fees or Fine online through pay.ecourts.gov.in. Litigants can view the status of the case also online through various channels created for service delivery hence the entire exercise can be done sitting at home. Over 1.59 crore cases have been handled by 20 virtual courts and in more than 25 lakhs cases, an online fine of more than Rs. 258 crores have been realised till 01.06.2022.

Further, for the effective branding of Virtual Courts and its objectives, a logo design contest was organized by MyGov from 28th March 2022 to 27th April 2022, wherein logo designs were invited from the public. An enthusiastic response was received with participation from across the country.
