Judges of District and Session Judge Courts across the country will be provided with tablet computers as part of the digitalisation of judiciary.
Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anisul Huq received 200 tabs from State Minister for Post, Telecommunications & Information Technology, Zunaid Ahmed Palak at his office on Monday, reports BSS.
While receiving the tabs law minister said the proper use of the device would help accelerate judicial activities and ultimately reduce case backlogs, he added.
On May 30, Chief Justice SK Sinha at a reception commented that judiciary lagged behind in terms of digitalisation.
He also mentioned that judges were kept out of the list of recipients of government tabs.
The Law Ministry collected the tabs just within two days after the Chief Justice's comment.
