The Supreme Court returned on Monday after the summer recess with a paperless and technologically advanced setup that included free WiFi for attorneys, litigants, and other visitors.

In the latest move, the top court has enabled free Wi-Fi in 1-5 courts, and soon it will be available in bar rooms, according to Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud. There won’t be any books or documents, the Chief Justice added, but it doesn’t mean they won’t rely on them at all.

The construction of numerous technical facilities, including more displays and improved video conferencing capabilities, has given the highest court’s courtrooms a contemporary look.

For advocates, litigants, media professionals, and other stakeholders visiting the Supreme Court of India, free Wi-Fi is made accessible as part of the court’s e-initiatives.

With effect from July 3, this facility will be accessible in the Chief Justice’s Court, Court no. 2 to 5, the hallway, the plaza in front, both waiting spaces in front of the plaza cafeteria, and Press Lounges I and II.

The facility will be expanded in a phased manner to all the courtrooms and surrounding spaces, the ladies’ bar room, the bar lounge and the Bar Library I and II.
