Kathmandu, Dec 24: Automated cause list management system has been launched at the High Courts throughout the country from today.

Chief Justice Bishwombhar Prasad Shrestha inaugurated the system amidst a programme held at the High Court Patan Nepal. There are 18 high courts, including one high court in each province and the temporary benches. The cause list would be determined through this automated system at all these courts from today.

On the occasion, Chief Justice Shrestha said the service-recipients would be able to access services in easy manner and the quality, transparency and credibility of the service would be enhanced when the courts are fully made technology-friendly.

“We have started the system of determining the cause-list at high courts also through the automated machine after it was a success at the Supreme Court. It is transparent, credible and ensures quality. It is not done on the basis of one’s special request. This system is initiated in high courts for the first time in the judiciary’s history,” the Chief Justice said.

According to him, this system has been possible from the human resources available at the IT Division of the Supreme Court alone and a study is ongoing for starting this service at district courts in the coming days.

“There is no discrimination in determining the cause-list through this system. Works in which the court and the bar have to carry out together are done in an effective manner. We are making a study regarding managing a system of registering cases at the Supreme Court from own law firm in the near future. This work has reached the final stage,” he further added.

Stating that preparations are being made to create a situation in which one will not have to go to the court for taking a court date, Chief Justice Shrestha said arrangements are being made to conduct hearings via online at the Supreme Court and high courts as well.

He also shared on the occasion that preparation is being made to conduct online hearing at the remaining high, special and labour courts and at the foreign employment tribunal as well.
