Road block in starting of Camp Courts


The Internet has introduced improvements in technology, communication and online entertainment, but it is also incredibly useful for education purposes as well. Teachers use the Internet to supplement their lessons, and a number of prestigious universities have opened up free online lectures and courses to everyone. It has even allowed retired teachers to read to and educate children in poorer countries. Widespread use of the Internet has opened up a substantial amount of knowledge to a much broader range of people than ever before.The Internet contains a wealth of knowledge that is available instantly upon any search. Because of this, the Internet has superseded libraries as a source for information gathering and research.In many ways, it is difficult to discuss any aspect of contemporary society without considering the Internet. Online practices have been part of young people's lives since birth and, much like oxygen, water, or electricity, are assumed to be a basic condition of modern life.
But the poor internet connectivity has created a roadblock in the start of Camp Courts in several inaccessible areas of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir thereby depriving vast population of the benefit of mechanism devised by the High Court in order to provide easy access to justice at the doorsteps. The mechanism of establishing Camp Courts for the inhabitants of the inaccessible areas of several districts of the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir was devised by the High Court early last year on the basis of reports received from the District Judges on the instructions of the Chief Justice Gita Mittal. Several areas of Kathua, Reasi, Poonch, Ramban and Kishtwar districts of Jammu division and Ganderbal, Bandipora, Baramulla and Kupwara districts of Kashmir division remain cut off even from the nearest courts for months together due to the vagaries of weather as a result people hailing from these areas remain deprived of access to justice. In order to provide justice to the people of such areas at their doorsteps, the High Court decided to establish Camp Courts and after a detailed exercise the centrally located convenient places were identified and notified. Moreover, a successful trial was conducted by establishing one Camp Court at SirshiJanakpur in Dachan area of Kishtwar district.
As present 2G speed is not adequate for transmitting of data from the remote areas the High Court has for the time being shelved the plan to make Camp Court functional in the identified inaccessible areas and because of poor internet connectivity easy access to justice as per the mechanism devised by the High Court has remained a distant dream for the vast population.
