The portal is aimed to provide appellant and others the integrated figures of pending cases in districts courts across the country. Developed under the guidance of H.L. Dattu, the Chief Justice of India, NJDG was inaugurated by Supreme Court judge Justice MB Lokur.

The public access portal, which can be reached at the National eCourt portal, www.ecourts.gov.in will help in promoting transparency and enhancing the access of information in the justice delivery system.

In a press note, the Supreme Court registry said, ” These statistics, which will be updated every day by the respective court complexes covered under the eCourts Project, will show case pendency broken into civil and criminal cases and segregated into age-wise categories of up to 2 years, between 2 to 5 years, between 5 to 10 years and more than 10 years.”

“NJDG page for public access will also disseminate national and state, district and court-wise information about institution and disposal of cases and also the cases filed by senior citizens and women in the total pendency,” press note added.

Out of approximately 2.7 crore cases of district judiciaries, NJDC acquires data on 1.94 crore cases pending in high courts of the country except Delhi and Madhya Pradesh. Case data in these two states is being migrated to national version of Case Information Software.

The portal will separately impart information of cases filed by women and senior citizens. It further allows monitoring for keeping track on the current status of the case.
