Online court session proved effective during the pandemic, says RTC founder Shreya Sharma
PUNE, May 19 (The CONNECT) – Legal aggregator startup platform Rest The Case (RTC) has welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of digitisation of judicial system and mediation to accelerate delivery of justice.
With digitisation, law will be accessible to everyone and the way to justice will also become shorter, RTC founder Shreya Sharma said. “Through RTC as a platform, we ensure that we help people not only by connecting them to a right lawyer but the documentation process is also simplified to make things easier,” she said.
Shreya pointed out that the experience of RTC has shown that the world can still carry on with the help of technology even if everything has been shut down. That has only been possible with the help of technology. during this time courts were shifted online as well and it was manageable.
“We connect clients to lawyers of their choice within seconds. We have simplified the process to the extent that the client just needs to filter the lawyers according to what they require and they can get the lawyer's details for free. We are also working on introducing online mediation on our platform which will speed up the process of justice and decision making,” she said.
Modi in his recent speech during the joint conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts highlighted how digital technology has uplifted India to greater heights and has made information accessible to the common man. His vision for the Indian Judicial System is to make it easily accessible for everyone through digitization. A common man should be able to understand the law easily and should be able to have access. Digitization of the legal system will have a significant impact in India, it will make things simpler and faster. He also mentioned that the legal language can be a little hard to understand so there should be an easier explanation for the laws. This will ensure everyone has a clear understanding of the law and his or her rights, Shreya explained.

RTC is a Legal aggregator platform that offers infinite opportunities to lawyers and clients and makes the law accessible to everyone. It is an online platform that gives a smart and convenient edge to create and build connections between lawyers and clients with just one simple click.

Rest The Case aims to provide solutions to all legal needs, from the comfort of home. The platform caters to the needs of clients seeking legal help, lawyers to maintain their verified accounts as well as law students seeking information, across India.
Prime Minister Modi also stressed on using Mediation as a practice in the system. This means issues can be resolved outside the court with the help of certified personnel who will try to help the two parties to settle out of the court instead of filing a case. This will help in decreasing the time for justice or settlement.
Shreya is also a mediator herself and promotes mediation as a important part of the legal system through Rest The Case.
