The RTI portal was formally launched by Justice Devashis Baruah, judge of the Gauhati High Court and the information and communication technology in-charge of the Kohima bench, in the presence of Justice Sushmita Phukan Khaund, judge of the high court and officials of the High Court Registry.

To mark the event, Justice Baruah symbolically filed the first online paperless e-RTI application at the Kohima bench through the dedicated web portal.

Section 6 (1) of the Right to Information Act, 2005, stipulates that an information seeker has a statutory right to move an application through electronic means.

So far, the RTI applications can be filed only through the physical mode. The online RTI portal has been initiated to make it convenient for people to access information about the Gauhati High Court and its outlying benches.

To access the online RTI portal, citizens can simply click on the dedicated ‘RTI’ tab available on the official website of the Gauhati High Court, Kohima bench. The web portal has a user-friendly interface and operates on an end-to-end paperless mode. The online RTI facility will be scaled up to all district courts of Nagaland in the near future.
