Supreme Court launches WhatsApp Service, case info now just a ping away

Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud announced on Thursday that the Supreme Court will debut on WhatsApp, providing information about cause lists, case filings, and case listings directly to advocates via WhatsApp messages.

The CJI said that despite being a ‘small initiative’, it could have a significant impact. He highlighted that integrating WhatsApp messaging services with the Supreme Court’s IT infrastructure would strengthen access to justice and enhance transparency in the judicial system.

Justice Chandrachud also shared the official WhatsApp number (87687676) of the Supreme Court and clarified that it will not be accepting any messages or calls.

He stated that this feature would significantly alter daily work habits and contribute to paper conservation, thus benefiting our planet.

Advocates-on-record and parties-in-person are set to benefit from this development, receiving automated messages regarding electronic filings, cause lists, orders, and judgments directly through WhatsApp. Additionally, stakeholders can conveniently access orders and judgments on their mobile devices, complementing the existing access through the Supreme Court’s website.
