    Please note that on Feb.8, 2009 The Gujarat High Court became the first court in the country to implement a model e-court project to reduce existing bottlenecks in the system. The pilot project was inaugurated by Chief Justice of India K. G. Balakrishnan. The project will provide tamper proof, authenticated audio-video recording of courtroom proceedings along with multipoint video conferencing facilities between the courtroom, central jail, the police commissioner's office and the forensic science laboratory.

    Of course in December 2009, we all read the news that Delhi gets first e-court,

    But please read the Title of the News in this Hindu News:
    Delhi High Court gets its first e-court
    Staff Reporter
    NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday crossed a new milestone in its march to make its proceedings transparent, easier and faster for litigants with the inauguration of the first e-court.
    If you check the above two news on various online sources you will find that there was a gap of 7 months, in Gujarat Highcourt and Delhi High court.
    Hindu does not say, about Delhi that it is India's first e-court. However when I checked Hindu archives, It says Gujarat Highcourt as India's First model e-court
