All cases filed by government should be through e-filing from January 1, 2022: Supreme Court e-committee to High Courts

The Supreme Court e-committee has directed all High Courts to ensure that all petitions/ cases filed by the government before High Courts are done only by way of e-filing from January 1, 2022.

Physical filing of cases by the government will not be permitted after that date in any matter, a letter issued by Chairperson of e-committee, Justice DY Chandrachud to High Courts said.

Besides the above, e-filing will be compulsory for all parties in certain categories of matters like revenue, tax, arbitration, commercial disputes and any other category as deemed fit by the concerned High Court from January 1.

Petitions, appeals and revisions against judgments/ orders of subordinate courts should also be compulsorily through e-fling mode from January 1, 2022.

In case of e-filing of an appeal or revision, the required record of the trial court can be digitally linked with the appellate/ revisional court, the letter by the e-committee said.

Suits for money recovery, complaints under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act, applications for maintenance, petitions for divorce by mutual consent, bail applications etc can be considered for e-filing, the letter further stated
