Today’s Hindu has a useful piece on what is going to be covered in the new Indian Legal Information Institute:
The India Legal Information Institute’s new website providing free of cost all legal information, including judgments of the Supreme Court, High Courts, tribunals and even district courts, “has now become fully operational.”
The institute was committed to
collecting legal information about India from all available sources;
publishing it on the Internet with free and full public access;
granting the public rights to use legal resources without any restriction;
creating awareness of the availability of free legal resources;
removing hurdles to providing information and
coordinating with other institutions to explore sources and utilisation of legal information.
Initially all judgments of the Supreme Court of India, including the old and recent judgments are available. All High Courts are to be phased in. At present, judgments of the Allahabad, Calcutta, Bombay and Delhi High Courts are available. The decisions of the Central Administrative Tribunals and district courts, and case schedules from the Supreme Court and High Courts, would also be made available soon.
The website also will have Central and State Acts and the Constitution of India.
