The Delhi High Court on Tuesday introduced an electronic court fee system. Now, applicants will not have to stand in queues to buy stamp papers to file their cases. They can pay court fee online.
The new feature is an addition to the e-court system, which is first-of-its-kind in the country's judicial system.
Launching the e-court fee system on Tuesday, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said, "This is a historic step that will bring transparency in the administration of justice. The government would extend its support to a modern judicial system."
The Chief Minister said she hoped the new system would soon be implemented in all district courts too. Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court D Murugesan said in a couple of months, litigants will be able to buy stamp paper from the Internet.
"The court fee stamps would be available 24x7 so that filing of cases becomes easy. Electronic payment of court fee will be a stepping stone and the system will go a long way to help in disposal of cases," Justice Murugesan said.
