Paving the way for the digital payments, Pune District court is set to become the first court in India to allow e-payments. This facility will be eventually available across all courtrooms in the country and it will be tested at Pune District court from December 15.
According to the judicial officers, this move will help in curbing the menace of red-tapism and corruption and will ensure transparency.
All the e-payments will be collected at pay.ecourt.gov.in/epay and will help end the long queues on court premises to pay cash.
“We were working on this for the last three to four months and have ensured all security measures. We have tied up with SBI where people can make payments online round the clock. There will be no additional bank charges for payments up to Rs 2,000,” said Atul Zende, Senior Court Manager.
