The State Administrative Council (SAC) under the chairmanship of Governor, Satya Pal Malik approved the ‘Code of Civil Procedure (Amendment) Bill, 2018’.
The bill seeks to introduce use of Video-Conferencing as an admissible method for presence of accused in criminal trials.
“This will ensure speedy trial and remand. It also reduces the requirement of security for taking accused from jail to courts,” said an official handout.
