eLegal services through common services centres
Citizens particularly in rural locations are not aware about legal entitlements which the constitution has provided. As a result of this they are trapped in various legal cases and they are also not aware with whom to discuss the matter. Most of the lawyers are based in cities or towns, rural citizens do not have much resource to travel. Even if they consult lawyers they land up spending a lot of money. Thus, in order to reduce the gap and provide legal help. CSC SPV has started a new service called e-Legal Service through the platform of CSCs spread across India. The service seeks to provide legal consultancy to citizens though the CSCs present in rural locations at their doorsteps. The service is made live through Digital Seva Portal.
