Supreme Court to translate its verdicts in regional languages

In a welcoming move, Supreme Court of India has reportedly decided to translate its verdicts in regional languages and the same will be available on its official website soon. This has been a long-pending demand of the non-English speakers. 

At present, the judgments carried out by the Supreme Court are written in English and are uploaded on the website in the same language. However, this decision will allow the non-English speakers and litigants to read judgments of their cases without any help. 

Initially, the verdicts will be translated into six regional languages including Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Assamese, Odia and Telugu. As per the media reports, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has formally cleared the indigenous software developed by the electronic software wing of the apex court. 

The sources also informed that the verdicts will also be translated in Tamil. The translated versions will be uploaded a week later on the official website.
