Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud on Wednesday announced that top court’s judgements in various Indian scheduled languages would now be made available on Republic Day.

As the bench led by the CJI assembled to conduct the day’s proceedings, he told the lawyers that a part of the electronic-Supreme Court Reports (e-SCR) project will be operationalised to make judgements available in some scheduled languages from Thursday. This will be free to access service.

The judgments will be available on the apex court website, its mobile app and on the National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG).

“We have the e-SCR (project), which now has nearly 34,000 judgments and an elastic search facility,” he said.

According to a statement, on the occasion of the 74th Republic Day, the Registry of Supreme Court would release translation of 1268 judgments in different Indian languages. The translated versions of some Supreme Court judgements are being made available in thirteen Indian languages Assamese, Garo, Hindi, Kannada, Khasi, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
