The Supreme Court, on July 25, 2020, introduced the iOS version of its official mobile app. This would make the interface accessible through iPhone and IPad.
The version of the app, enabled for Android software, was launched in November 2019. The application enables lawyers to look for information in relation to cause lists, case Status, daily orders, judgments, latest updates, office reports, circulars, rules, and the display board System.
The app allows the user to operate in six different languages namely, English, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. It can be downloaded for free from a link on the apex court’s official website.
The app has two dashboards, one that shows general information for litigants and the public, and the other that has personalized information for lawyers.
“Lawyers can also download or share the status links of searched contents. It is a free downloadable app that provides useful up-to-date information on Pending and Decided cases of the Supreme Court. Two different Dashboards viz general information for Litigants/public and personalized information for Advocates–on-record are made available where they can download or share the status links of searched contents. Search Options include various Cause Lists, Case Status, Daily Orders, Judgments, Latest Updates, Office Reports, Circulars, Rules, Display Board System, and many more. The user can select his preferred language from the menu option of 5 nos. of available vernacular languages (Hindi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada) with the default English version. The app not only provides the current status of searched cases along with judgments in vernacular languages (wherever available) but also facilitates Advocates-on-record to add/remove cases into their account which they wish to follow. Regular update notification and case alters are available on this Mobile Application.”, reads the circular.
