As many as 2 thousand 9 hundred 27 Court complexes across India have been connected so far by a high-speed Wide Area Network, WAN under e-Courts Project. It has led to completion of 97.86 per cent sites out of 2 thousand 9 hundred 92 sites conceived to be connected with high speed WAN under the project.
Department of Justice along with BSNL is working relentlessly on connecting the remaining sites. Under e-Courts Project, one of the largest digital networks of the world was conceived by Department of Justice along with the e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India to connect the 2 thousand 9 hundred 92 court complexes located all over India by a high-speed Wide Area Network through different modes of connectivity such as Optical Fiber Cable, Radio Frequency RF, Very Small Aperture Terminal VSAT etc. In May 2018 the mandate of providing Managed MPLS VPN services to all these sites was entrusted to the BSNL, which has pan India presence with latest state-of-the-art technology and high-end telecom infrastructure and transmission equipment. The BSNL also has presence at all corners of India, including North Eastern region, Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Andaman and Nicobar Islands etc.
Many courts under the e-Courts project are located in far flung areas where terrestrial cable cannot be used for providing connectivity. Such areas are termed as Technically Not Feasible and in Department of Justice’s endeavor to bridge the digital divide; connectivity is being established at the sites using alternative means like RF, VSAT etc.
