Video conferencing launched in Shillong bench of Gauhati HC

The Shillong bench of Gauhati High Court yesterday launched a video conferencing system to make way for the reduction of burden imposed upon the litigants to travel all the way to Guwahati for deposing before High Court. Chief Justice of Gauhati High Court Madan B Lakur said that after the implementation of the video conferencing system a person can appear for hearing before the High Court from Shillong. He added that through this system urgent cases can be heard and judgments can also be delivered. Justice Lakur also said that introduction of video conferencing was expected to further speed up the rate of disposing cases in the Shillong Bench.  The Shillong Bench of the Gauhati High Court has one stationed judge besides other judges who come from Guwahati to conduct hearings.
