National Judicial Data Grid

National Judicial Data Grid:

The National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG) has gained significant attention for its role in revolutionizing the way judicial proceedings are managed in India.

  • National Judicial Data Grid is a database of orders, judgments and case details of 18,735 District & Subordinate Courts and High Courts created as an online platform under the eCourts Project.
  • Data is updated on a near real-time basis by the connected District and Taluka courts.
  • It provides data relating to judicial proceedings/decisions of all computerized district and subordinate courts of the country.
  • All High Courts have also joined the NJDG through web services, providing easy access facility to the litigant public.
  • Features:
    • Aligned with the National Data Sharing and Accessibility Policy (NDSAP), NJDG provides an Open Application Programming Interface (API) to Central & State Governments.
    • This API offers streamlined access to NJDG data using designated departmental IDs and access keys.
    • This feature is intended for institutional litigants to evaluate and monitor cases, with plans to extend access to non-institutional litigants in the future.
