The Government of India has launched new mobile applications meant to aid litigants in need of legal services.
The Nyaya Bandhu mobile app facilitates the provision of free legal services.
The app aims to connect litigants in need with lawyers willing to offer such pro bono services. Lawyers willing to offer free legal services may register themselves with the app.
Litigants in need can thereby access free legal advice through the app.
The Tele-Law online dashboard has been launched in furtherance of the Tele-Law scheme, which was launched last year.
The Tele-Law scheme intends to connect needy litigants with a panel of lawyers from the State Legal Services Authorities.
The new online dashboard mobile app aids in this process, which includes video conferencing, chat and telephone facilities to help the litigant connect with her lawyer.
This app is also intended to help users pre-register their case.
