A lady IAS in UP designs new App for expeditious disposal of court cases
Hardoi: In order to ensure speedy disposal of criminal cases in the courts, a new Software 'summon management system' has been developed which will effectively ascertain presence of witnesses, lack of which has largely been responsible for the delay in justice dispensation.
The 'summon management system' Software/App will ensure the information about the witnesses, court name, police station and his or her residential address will reach the in-charge of police station through SMS and to district SP through email automatically and instantaneously. It will help presence of witnesses in the courts and avoid unnecessary adjournments in the court hearings.
The District Magistrate of Hardoi, about 100 kms from the state capital, Shubhra Saxena, who is the guiding force behind the whole concept, said it was prepared after an arduous study of the judicial system while an expert team of National Informatics Centre (NIC) executed the project.

Talking to newstrack.com, she said long-pending list of criminal cases will be pruned after this Software comes into practice. It will not only lessen the loads from the court but also take care of proven principle of jurisprudence 'justice delayed is justice denied'. She said that the absence of witnesses has been the single largest factor in delay of the trial while the inordinate delay often influences them.
It may be recalled that Shubhra Saxena was recipient of Election Commission's commendation for innovating the deployment and movement of election duty parties during the elections. She said that she will make presentation at the top level so that it may be implemented in the entire state.
