PLVs Imparted Training To Facilitate Undertrial Prisoners

SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court has taken a unique initiative to provide free and speedy online access to the case status to undertrial prisoners.

To achieve this goal, the e-court staff of each district court has imparted training to the Para Legal Volunteers (PLVs) engaged in the Legal Aid Clinics and also to the convicts identified by the jail authorities.

APLVs facilitate undertrial prisoners to get online information of their respective cases pending in different courts without waiting for physical visit of their kith and kin to the jail for knowing the status of their respective cases.

As many as 26 Para Legal Volunteers and 32 convicts from 12 districts and 14 jails/ sub-jails have been trained so far.
