Organized legal system
The legislature in India provides for a number of rules and regulations governing the conduct of citizens in the nation. Although, as many as 1,000 central laws are available, the difficulty arises in finding all of them on a single unified platform.
In furtherance to the order of the High Court of Delhi, in a writ petition filed by Vansh Sharad Gupta seeking online access to Indian laws, the Government is in the process of organizing all laws in India by collating them onto a single e-portal- India Code1: The guidelines issued by the Court require the online portal to fulfil the below stated requisites:
- Organization of all central laws, subsidiary acts, rules, regulations, procedures, notifications and circulars;
- The content should be in machine readable PDF format;
- The navigation on the portal aims to be such that the complete law-making process, from the parent Act to the subordinate legislations, are clearly visible;
- Uploading of State Government Acts, rules, regulations, and subordinate legislations as well;
- Mobile friendly view;
- All ministries and departments must have a nodal officer for this exercise.
The High Court of Delhi via its pragmatic approach, has introduced organization and systematic arrangement of legal regulations on a single online platform which not only facilitates the users of the cyberworld to get access to all the laws of the country but also assures that authentic data is available to the citizens.
