Have you heard about the news? Supreme Court recently launched an application named 2.0 through which law officers and union ministries will be able to watch live court proceedings. According to the news trending on social media, it came to know that the Supreme Court of India launched an application called 2.0 for only android users, however, soon it will be available for IOS users as well. Undoubtedly, the application is created to keep an eye on the pandemic that the world has been through. As like in other countries higher authority is able to watch live court proceedings and the same thing going to take place in India soon.
Through this application nodal officers of ministries and veteran law, officers will be able to watch court proceedings in and that too in real-time. However, some necessary things are yet to be done before launching this application, and perhaps developers are taking care of that point too. Yes, we are talking about privacy because if court proceedings are going to be live for nodal officers then, there should be some restrictions. The network should be protected so that no one would come in between (like hacking) while the judgment is being made. Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud in his statement said, “the application can be downloaded from the google play store”. Now, the concern is, if the application is available on the google play store then anyone can download this, therefore we are saying that there must be some terms and conditions following which it can be operated only.
What Is App 2.0?
This application would help the assessee so that they can watch in real-time the status of their lawsuit filed, order, judgments, and pendency of their cases. However, the application can face some difficulties at the initial stage because it is going to be something new. Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud in his statement said “Android version 2.0 is currently available while iOS will take one more week to get available. Apart from lawyers and advocates on record, this app will give exclusive real-time access to all law and nodal officers of different ministries of the Central government. Now, They can watch the court proceedings by logging in through this application”.
Undoubtedly, this is one of the best initiatives that have been taken in a while, and it is also because of the pandemic. You all must have seen some of the real-time footage from the courtrooms. Taking you back to the time of the pandemic, NV Ramana (previous chief justice of India) gave access to some prominent media persons to enable them to watch court proceedings virtually. Well, let’s see how successful this idea is going to result. Stay in the loop to read all the latest news across the nation.
