The Odisha Electronics & IT Department today unveiled a book on Integrated Legal Monitoring System (ILMS). The book was launched by Hon’ble Minister, Electronics & IT Shri Tusharkanti Behera in the presence of Shri Manoj Mishra, Secretary- Electronics & IT and senior officials of Odisha Computer Application Centre (OCAC).
“This book on ILMS traces the journey of the system, talks about its visible benefits and draws a roadmap to the future. ILMS is in sync with the Odisha government’s 5T governance paradigm which has resulted in a drastic reduction in legal caseload for the government departments. The digital solution has made legal case management easier for the departments with features like generating alerts for dates of hearing, filing of counter response, orders by the courts and timeline for compliance”, the Hon’ble Minister said.
Speaking at the book launch ceremony, Shri Mishra said, “This book should serve as a lighthouse on the disruptive potential of technology beyond the delivery of public services. Odisha has been one of the pioneer states in leveraging technologies even for niche areas like legal case management. ILMS with its alerts on key milestones like scheduled date of hearing, the deadline to file a counter response, orders pronounced by court and the timeline for compliance has reset our approach to case management”.
ILMS is one of the reformist technology interventions implemented in Odisha. Post implementation of this system, there has been a phenomenal reduction in the backlog of cases. ICT enabled solutions like ILMS have the potential to transform the face of administration and enhance the image of the government in reinforcing the confidence of citizens and investors.
