FASTER digital platform for Judiciary


From UPSC perspective, the following things are important :

Prelims level: FASTER Platform, SUPACE

Mains level: Speedy disposal of cases

‘FASTER’, an abbreviation of ‘Fast and Secured Transmission of Electronic Records’, a digital platform was formally launched by Chief Justice of India (CJI) N.V. Ramana.

What is FASTER?

  • The FASTER system proposes transmission of e-authenticated copies of the interim orders, stay orders, bail orders and record of proceedings to the duty-holders for compliance and due execution, through a secured electronic communication channel.
  • These orders may vary from stay of execution of a person to freeze on the demolition of a slum to bail orders for undertrial prisoners.
  • The idea stemmed from a case reported about several prisoners in the Agra Jail forced to remain behind bars for three days after the hard copies of the order had not reached the prison officials.

Benefits offered

  • FASTER would aid the cause of quick and effortless justice.
  • The timely delivery of the court’s orders to the authorities would also prevent unnecessary arrests and custody of people who have already been granted anticipatory bail.
  • For smooth transmission of court’s orders and effective implementation of Article 21, Right to Life, such a system was the need of the hour.
