First commercial court in Andhra Pradesh starts functioning at Visakhapatnam
One of the two commercial courts sanctioned for Andhra Pradesh as part of ease of doing business, has started functioning in Visakhapatnam. The other one in the State will come up in Vijayawada. The court in Visakhapatnam covers Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam and East Godavari districts. It deals with cases of financial transactions above Rs 1 crore.
The court will soon become paperless as the entire process of filing of cases will be made online. Henceforth, advocates and individuals can file cases from their home through e-filing. This is the first court to have such facility in the State.
Joint Director of Industries Giridhar told TNIE that NIC experts from Delhi conducted a two-day training in e-filing and the court case information system for the court staff and advocates here on Wednesday and Thursday.
