Abstract The rapid evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) presents a dual scenario of opportunities and challenges in service delivery systems, especially in meeting the expectations of digitally literate citizens. As various sectors move towards online platforms for service provision, including food delivery, healthcare, and retail, a critical need arises to extend similar conveniences to the judicial domain. By embracing technology, we can enhance the accessibility and efficiency of legal services, benefiting individuals across diverse demographics and instilling hope for a more efficient and accessible judicial system.

In India, the judicial system, overseen predominantly by Judicial Service Officers, has undergone significant transitions, departing from historical practices involving Civil Service Officers. This paper makes a unique contribution to the discourse on modernising judicial processes by exploring the adoption of technology-driven solutions such as the Case Management System (CMS) in the District Judiciaries of India. Through a comprehensive investigation into the dynamics of case management within Indian District Courts, with a specific emphasis on the utilisation and impact of CMS, this research aims to foster accessibility, transparency, and the consolidation of the rule of law. Additionally, the paper reviews global experiences, such as the implementation of e-court initiatives in various countries, including Malaysia and the United Kingdom, shedding light on the transformative potential of technology in enhancing judicial efficiency and service quality.

This study highlights the significance of efficient case management in ensuring timely justice delivery, resource optimisation, litigant satisfaction, transparency, and upholding the rule of law, but also provides practical insights into the evolution of Case Information System (CIS) in Indian district courts. From CIS 1.0 to the latest iteration, CIS 3.2, this research delves into the technological advancements and potential challenges and solutions associated with their implementation. Ultimately, this research advocates for a forward-looking approach to leveraging technology to create a more efficient, transparent, and accessible judicial framework in India and beyond.
