Having regard to the fact that most lawyers are not tech savvy the chairman has said that “the experience of these days has not been very encouraging, since barring a section of Advocates, majority of Advocates in High Court and District Courts, those who are not computer savvy and could not avail the facility of videoconferencing, failed to approach the Hon’ble Courts.
