Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud on Wednesday launched a Supreme Court service, which will start providing top court's judgments in various Indian scheduled languages from Republic Day.

The Chief Justice, as the bench assembled to conduct the day's proceedings, told the lawyers that a part of the electronic-Supreme Court Reports (e-SCR) project will be operationalized to make judgments available in some scheduled languages from Thursday, which will be free to access.

The judgments will be available on the apex court website, its mobile app and on the National Judicial Data Grid (NJDG).

Chief Justice Chandrachud said, "We have the e-SCR (project), which now has nearly 34,000 judgments and an elastic search facility".

He added that 1,091 judgments in regional languages will be launched on the Republic Day and emphasized that the apex court is on a "mission" in connection with availability of all judgments in scheduled languages.
