Supreme Court judge Justice DY Chandrachud suggested that the government should incorporate Artificial Intelligence algorithms to predict the outcomes of certain special cases.
As for him, it would be helpful in cases such as land acquisition-related cases and motor accident claims. He added that this will help the Judiciary in identifying frivolous litigation and in turn improve productivity.
The ‘Justice Clock’ and electronic payment of court fees were the two digital initiatives of the Gujarat High Court that were inaugurated on Monday. He further praised that the judges have been ‘oblivious to the demands of time’ and that the technology has refreshed the value of time for them. These digital initiatives will help in bringing focus to the judges.
While giving justice to the victims the judges tend to neglect time but one thing they also take in consideration is the time value of all the stakeholders. Once a case is taken on hand, no case is big or small; eventually it represents a human face behind it. Justice Clock is a LED display set up at a crossroad near the Gujarat High Court area and it displays statistics, case clearance rate, pending cases and cases that have been disposed of, that are across from all the courts of Gujarat.
With e-payment, litigants and advocates can now make online payments instead of submission of judicial stamp papers.
The apex court judge said that this system should be adopted by every justice in the state.
