The Union government was launched ‘Tele-Law’ – a programme aimed at providing legal aid services in rural areas through digital technology. The programme is a continuation to the Access to Justice Project to Marginalised Persons implemented by UNDP in 2008.

The pilot project is being undertaken by the Ministry of Law and Justice in collaboration with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and will be launched across 1000 Common Service Centres (CSC) in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and 500 CSCs will be tested in its first phase.
