Agreement signed with ICTA to digitize entire judicial system in Sri Lanka

The Ministry of Justice, the Judicial Services Commission and the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) jointly initiated a program to digitize the entire judicial system in Sri Lanka.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed today (11.02.2021) at the Ministry of Justice.

The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by 2021. This project will allow the Doing Business Index to grow and attract more investment.

It is planned to digitize the entire judicial process, including the maintenance of the files of the judiciary, the management of the judiciary, the filing of cases, and the payment of fines.

Information pertaining to the Central Judicial System and its case files are kept inside the Lanka Government Cloud to ensure its security. (Data Security)

The procurement of the project is expected to begin in March. The General Treasury will provide basic funding while giving priority to local suppliers.
