"It would save money and would ensure security of undertrials," Allahabad High Court Justice Devendra Kumar Arora said after inaugurating the Video Conferencing Bhavan.
Video conferencing facility to hold online hearings of under trials without them coming out of their prisons was inaugurated today at the Mathura District Court.
“It would save money and would ensure security of undertrials,” Allahabad High Court (Administrative Judge) Justice Devendra Kumar Arora said after inaugurating the Video Conferencing Bhavan at the court campus here.
On facilities to litigants, Arora said his priority was to set “the house” in order.
“From the feed back received, there has been improvement in every component. Not only are officers attending court in time but delivering speaking order. Their behaviour towards litigants is also good,” he said.
