The video-conferencing facility launched on November 22 has been saving much of the court's time. On Saturday, on the first weekly holiday of the Court after the launch of this facility, duty magistrate Pavnesh Singla saved almost an hour.
Cases of eight accused, whose challans had not been submitted by the police, earlier, were heard through video conferencing. The accused, whose challans were produced in court on Saturday were directed to be present in court on the next date of hearing. The magistrate also heard the grievances of the accused. The entire process took just fifteen minutes.
One of the lawyers who was attending the virtual proceedings said that usually on Saturdays, the proceedings took an hour and a half, but the new set up had saved a lot of time.
One of the court employees said, "On Saturdays and Sundays, we have to first wait for the accused and their counsels to reach the court. Then the magistrate is informed. It is a day-long process. Today, it got over in no time".
The purpose of launching the facility was to save on time of the court, thus, speeding up the process. The facility was earlier to be launched in the new court complex in Sector 43, where the court will be shifted by year end. The facility was initiated by the new Secessions Judge, S K Aggarwal.
