The Computer Cell
There is a well-equipped Computer Cell with a network of more
than 100 systems connected to centralized Server. This is a
National Project maintained by National Informatics Centre,
New Delhi (NIC). The project is presently implemented in the
State Capitals of all the States of our Union. It is intended
that in future this same software be implemented in all the
District Courts of Jharkhand.
The centralized Server is in the Main Judicial Commissioner
Buiding. The Operating System used is Linux Enterprise Server
with RDBMS Oracle based on Three-Tier Client/ Server Technology.
The network applied is star network. The dedicated Software
installed in the Server for entry of Courts Data is Case
Management Information System (CMIS). All the network points
in the each of the five separate Court buildings within the
Civil Court premises have been hooked up using U.T.P. cables.
For hooking up of network points from one building to another
underground Fibre Optic Cable is used. Fibre Optic Cable is
connected to CBI Fodder Scam Building, Magistrate Building and
Centralised Filing System Bulding.
There are three Servers:
1. Database Server
2. Application Server.
3. Back-Up Server.
The Database Server is controlled and maintained by Oracle 10g.
The Application Server has Client based software developed upon
The Back-Up Server is used to store regular data entry from
the different courts as well as the main program.
Within a very limited span of time, most of the works of this
District Court have been computerized. Apart from using the
CMIS, the users are using MS-Office for their day to day work.
All the third grade staff (clerks and stenographers) have been
imparted specialized training regarding Case Management System
as well as MS-Office. Training, here, is a regular phenomenon
and is provided time to time as and when needed. The Projector
is also used for the purpose.
Additional features of the Network:
The software literature on how to use the Case Management System
is provided over the local Network. Any user of the court can
access this literature from his/her computer for day to day
query or for sorting out their problems regarding CMIS.
There is a temporary shared folder available over the local
network which is used by the users for transferring files from
one computer to another as required. There is also a provision
for sharing the printing devices.
