Courts use SMS service to create awareness on COVID19

In order to disseminate information and make lawyers and litigants aware about Coronavirus pandemic, the J&K High Court is using Short Messaging Services (SMS).

Around 1.89 lakh SMSes have been sent by the Court and district courts of J&K and Ladakh UTs to the lawyers and litigants.

Various advisories/guidelines/help-lines issued by WHO, Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and J&K Health and Medical Education Department were being conveyed through SMSes.

The move is a part of the measures taken by the Court to sensitize lawyers and litigants especially those residing in far flung areas of J&K and Ladakh UTs on Coronavirus pandemic.
