Case Information Software (CIS) which forms the basis for the e court services is based on customized Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) which has been developed by NIC. Currently, CIS National Core Version 3.2 is being implemented in District Courts and the CIS National Core Version 1.0 is being implemented for the High Courts.

To ensure smooth functioning of Courts during COVID-19 pandemic, a new software patch has been developed to help in smart scheduling of cases.
