Framing of rules on E-filing: Madhya Pradesh HC
4th October 2020
The Madhya Pradesh HC has framed rules regarding Electronic Filing in the High Court to regulate practice and procedure relating to use of e-filing in the HC, which can be done by visiting the HC Web Portal. The Rule 5 talks about the steps for registration of Advocates and litigants in the E-filing portal.
The documents are to be digitally signed by the parties and/or their Advocate. If one does not possess a digital signature issued by the competent authority, a print out of the action shall be physically signed by the party/advocate in accordance to HC Rules and it shall thereafter be scanned and uploaded. The Rules also gave an option to authenticate the documents on the basis of e-sign on Aadhar authentication.
