Punjab and Haryana HC to send notices by e-mails

This will prevent the unnecessary delays caused in sending notices through post

Chandigarh: In a bid to tackle to problem of unnecessary delays caused in sending notices to parties, involved in court cases and in litigations, through post, Punjab and Haryana High Court has drafted a unique solution. The court will now onwards send such notices and reminders through e-mails (electronic mails).

Working in this direction, the central government, Chandigarh and Punjab and Haryana governments have submitted their respective e-mail addresses of government offices and their law officers with the High Court. Now high court authorities can send notices to them on their e-mail addresses rather than through post.

“These e-mail addresses have been submitted to a division bench of Punjab and Haryana High Court. High court had also directed to post interim orders on the court’s official website,” said a senior official of the High Court.

“This will prevent the unnecessary delays caused in sending notices through post. This system will not only benefit law officers but also the litigants in a big way. The system will initially pertains to only government offices but gradually private parties will also be involved in it,” he added.

High court has also asked the National Informatics Centre (NIC) to prepare a module within a month so that the process of sending notices via e-mails can be initiated. NIC would prepare a database of web addresses and official e-mails of all the government offices of central government.
