PHC administrative reforms to facilitate Litigants

PHC stops private schools from charging summer vacation fee

PESHAWAR: In order to facilitate litigants and their counsels, Peshawar High Court (PHC) Monday brought public interface sections (Institution and Copying branch) near the entrance gate of PHC complex.
Moreover, the process of institution and copying has also been digitalized. These steps are taken to expedite the entire process which was earlier carried out manually having many loopholes and was time consuming.
Under the newly installed automated system now the litigant/counsel only provide one original copy, one photocopy and one soft copy of the petition along with his/her contact number and email at Institution Branch to initiate process.
Upon receiving the petition a case entry number is given to litigant and the petition is sent to the Fixation Branch for further scrutiny.
Fixation Branch responds the litigant about result of scrutiny within 24 hours through SMS alert in either case of petition acceptance for hearing or return of incomplete file to Institution Branch with objections to be removed.
Likewise, Copying Branch instantly provides attested court order/judgment upon receiving the application.
Now reader and print section of the concerned court upload scanned judgment in the system which is available online to Copying Branch to cater applicants.
Moreover, keeping in view problems of the litigants, Information Kiosk has been setup at the entry gate to answer basic queries regarding cases.
Under the new arrangement, now Deputy Registrar Judicial has started hearing of cases at reception which was held earlier inside High Court building when
the litigants would face inconvenience in locating and reaching the branch.
