It is for the first time in the judicial history of Pakistan that courts will be connected through application of latest video-link connectivity. It will benefit the lawyers as well as litigants and make the judicial system more responsive to the needs of the people approaching courts for redressal of their grievances. Initially this facility is being started at the Principal Seat, Islamabad and the Supreme Court Branch Registry, Karachi.
A three-member Bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa will start hearing of cases through this facility from Monday.
E-Court facility will provide an effective and efficient platform which will discourage adjournments, encourage legal fraternity to plead their cases without any delay and at the same time provide convenience to the Advocates to pursue their cases in other Courts in the city where the Branch Registry is situated.
