The Indian government has taken a significant step towards modernizing its criminal justice system. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, provisions for e-FIR (Electronic First Information Report), Zero FIR, and digital chargesheets have been incorporated into new criminal laws.

The introduction of e-FIR and Zero FIR is likely to streamline the process of filing complaints and registering cases. With e-FIR, individuals will be able to file complaints electronically, reducing the need for physical paperwork and increasing efficiency.

The use of digital chargesheets is another significant development. These electronic documents will replace traditional paper-based chargesheets, making it easier to access and share case information.

As India's judiciary continues to evolve, these digital innovations are expected to play a key role in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system.
