Hot Off The PressNews

Hon’ble the Chief Justice, Raghvendra Singh Chauhan, High Court for the State of Telangana launched the Inter-operable Criminal Justice System (ICJS) and National Service and Tracking of Electronic Processes (NSTEP) Project in all the Districts of State of Telangana.

This facility would obviate the Courts to access the data from the other stakeholders of ICJS project and the transmission will be done electronically which will bring more transparency and reduction of data entry at multiple places which will relieve the burden of Staff of Courts, Police and all other stake holders, as well as saves money to the State exchequer.

Telangana is the pioneer State to have ICJS and NSTEP Projects in India. The ICJS and NSTEP Project launch is first in the Country where the entire data exchange is online in Courts of State of Telangana in coordination with other stake holders of the project.
