Pune, 12th August 2021: Citizens will now get information about the hearings of revenue cases directly on mobile. The parties and lawyers concerned will also get information on mobile about the cases being heard on the actual trial and the cases to be heard thereafter along with information on which cases will be heard every day. 

This facility has been provided through a mobile application ‘EQJ Court Live Case Board Pune Collector Office’. This will be the first time such an initiative will be implemented in the state on a pilot basis.

“This facility has been provided to avoid overcrowding in the backdrop of Coronavirus disease (COVID19) and to ensure that citizens do not have to wait for the hearing of the case. The facility will provide updated information on the status of hearings to the parties. A time of three minutes has been fixed for hearing each case. Accordingly, 60 cases will be heard every day. Only three dates will be given for the hearing and the result of the case concerned will be declared,” informed additional collector Vijaysinh Deshmukh.

The prevailing system has been changed to expedite the outcome of pending cases. Till now notices to the parties and dates of hearing were being done in one place. But now a separate arrangement has been made to issue notices. Therefore, the hearing of the cases is going to be held in time. The mobile application will tell about which cases will be heard during the day. The parties will also get information about the ongoing trial and the next five cases to be heard thereafter. This application can be downloaded on Android as well as on the iOS system after the next two to three days. 

Deshmukh also said that the application will be inaugurated this week in the presence of state deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat. 

Revenue cases involving land disputes are heard by the additional collector. The office is always crowded with petitioners, defendants, and lawyers. A facility has been set up to provide updated information on the case on mobile applications to avoid this rush.  

After downloading the mobile application, the parties and lawyers concerned will be able to get information about the cases.
