To ensure hassle-free transactions and prevent fraudulent practices, the Delhi government has introduced electronic-stamping facility in all the district courts in the city while doing away with stamp papers of all denominations.
"Delhi has become the first state in the country to introduce e-court fee in all its district courts.... The new system was first introduced in Delhi High Court in November, 2012. The exercise for all six district courts has been completed within just three weeks," Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said.
She said this was a major step forward in the direction of a modern judicial system and an e-governed state. "The last court to implement the e-court fee system was the Kakardooma court where it was introduced last week," Dikshit said.
It is a unique system, which enables the public and lawyers to get a court fee receipt of exact denomination, irrespective of the amount, thus, making the entire process of remitting court fee entirely paper-free," she said.
