Honourable Mr. Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir, Chief Justice, High Court of Himachal Pradesh launched the Android based Mobile Application for the convenience of the litigants and lawyers, on 7th January 2016.
The objective of the mobile App is to disseminate information relating to the cases filed in the HP High Court and to generate alerts whenever a particular case comes up for admission, hearing, orders, decisions etc. By using this App, the litigants or lawyers can search cases based on case number, party name, respondent name, advocate name basis. The orders and judgements are also downloadable in this App. A unique feature is that the App saves the data and there is no need of Internet connectivity to view status of saved cases.
