Chief Justice Unveils Supreme Court's Digital Future on 75th Anniversary

In a significant development, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud announced the Supreme Court's imminent transition to a cloud-based digital infrastructure during the commemoration of its 75th anniversary. Addressing a gathering comprising judges and legal luminaries, Justice Chandrachud emphasized the necessity for the Supreme Court to evolve continually by acknowledging challenges and initiating crucial dialogues.

Under this initiative, the Supreme Court's digital repository will offer free access to judgments in a user-friendly, digital format. This comprehensive database will include all 519 volumes of Supreme Court reports since 1950, encompassing 36,308 cases. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the anniversary celebrations, which also marked the launch of a new Supreme Court website.

Reflecting on the significance of the occasion, Justice Chandrachud underscored the Constitution's role in establishing the court as a symbol of mutual respect among citizens. He also revealed plans to establish a technologically equipped "war room" to facilitate real-time monitoring of judicial data nationwide.

Furthermore, Justice Chandrachud highlighted the advancements in gender inclusivity within the legal profession, noting a significant rise in women occupying key roles across the nation. The recent designation of 11 women lawyers as senior advocates by the Supreme Court signifies a step towards fostering gender diversity within the legal fraternity.

Looking ahead, Justice Chandrachud outlined key structural reforms essential for the judiciary, including addressing case backlog, modernizing procedures, and fostering a culture of professionalism to ensure timely judicial outcomes. He emphasized the importance of providing equal opportunities for first-generation lawyers, including those from marginalized backgrounds.

In concluding remarks, Justice Chandrachud urged for discussions on reforming long-standing practices such as extended vacations, suggesting alternatives like flexible working hours for lawyers and judges. He emphasized the judiciary's commitment to upholding dignity and efficiency, stressing the need for continuous introspection and adaptation to meet evolving challenges.
