Legal Enablement Of ICT Systems In IndiaFebruary 15th, 2009 - 11:43 am ICT by VKS
The unfortunate condition through which the present ICT environment of India is passing through is really painful. Despite lot of positive suggestions and recommendation, the Government of India (GOI) has not paid even slightest attention towards the strengthening of legal enablement of ICT systems in India. The recent passing of the Information Technology (Amendment) Bill, 2008 by both Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha without even a discussion or debate is a shameful example of the same.
However, a new ray of hope has been gleaming through the dark clouds of non-transparent and non-accountable governmental actions. Mr. Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of Perry4Law, is spearheading a very unique and much needed ICT initiative of India. Perry4Law has come up with the latest initiative titled “Legal Enablement of ICT Systems in India” that would act as the “National and International Gateway” for information related to use of ICT for Legal and Judicial purposes in India.
Till now, there is no such initiative in India that is analysing the need and applicability of ICT in the Legal and Judicial Systems of India. The platform will also serve as “Guidance” for India as well as other Nations for acquainting themselves with the legal enablement of ICT systems in India. We hope the GOI and other interested players would consult the same from time to time while formulating ICT Policies and Strategies of India.
