In order to facilitate lawyers and the citizens, the Islamabad High Court has recently launched a mobile application. It is aimed at facilitating people in getting the notifications and the latest updates about their cases right on their smartphones. The app, called Case App IHC, is available on Google’s Play Store and you can download it for free.
When you launch the app, you will have to register by entering your CNIC number, name, and mobile number. The registration is free, however, you will need the internet connectivity for the app to work. Once registered, you can save your case data in this app and you can read it later even in offline mode.
The layout of the app is very simple and has a green background. There are multiple options available in the menu which include Case list, Copy status, Lawyer cases, District cases etc.
Key Features of the app

Since the cases digitization process is yet to complete, not all cases registered in the court are available on the app. However, Islamabad High Court has digitalized more than 10,000 files so far and the process to integrate technology has been accelerated.
Earlier, Lahore High Court (LHC) also launched a similar application, which helps users in checking the case hearing dates, progress, and status of cases or get the copy of verdict related to any case on their smartphones. The LHC app was developed by the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB).
