New Delhi: 14th May 2021 Jupitice Justice Technologies has developed the World’s First Private Digital Court under the Private Justice System (Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR Mechanism). This brings India at the forefront of innovation in lawtech (legal technology).
Ever-increasing disputes and high case pendency has taken a toll on public justice systems worldwide. As per the study by the World Justice Project, there are approximately 5 billion people who don’t have access to basic justice needs. This is why a Private Digital Court that facilitates ADR proceedings or out-of-settlements online would not only help reduce the burden on the public justice systems, but also enhance access to justice anywhere or anytime.
Raman Aggarwal, Founder and CEO of Jupitice say, “It is a new justice order where all parties involved are happy. Unlike a litigation process, justice through ADR mechanisms is quick, less stressful, and cost-effective and results in a mutual settlement maintaining a healthy business relation.”
Jupitice Private Digital Court is a combination of the world’s first end-to-end digital justice delivery platform that facilitates all the participants involved in the dispute to perform tasks (case filing to awards & settlement) online and on a single platform. Jupitice has also aggregated ADR professionals across the world to form its ‘Marketplace’ which makes it even easier for justice seekers to connect with justice providers.
In the context of the current COVID-19 scenario, the need for digital justice has been discussed more than ever. While releasing NITI Ayog’s ODR Handbook, Justice DY Chandrachud stressed on the critical role of Online Dispute Resolution and said,“The effective use of affordable ODR services can bring about a major change in the perception of parties involved in the dispute—by making the process more accessible, affordable and participative. It will make all parties consider it more amicable and solution-oriented. This will ultimately lead to more efficient dispute resolution.”
With Jupitice Private Digital Court in the market, it is not just easy for common people to settle their cases outside the purview of the court, but also for the MSMEs to resolve their cross-border disputes without any jurisdiction barrier. Like any other arbitration award, even an online arbitration award received on the Jupitice platform is as legally enforceable as a court decree.
Jupitice platform does not just intend to create a technological disruption in the justice industry; it aims to bridge the world’s justice gap through technology by promoting the Private Justice System.
