In Indian scenario, we are still in the transformation phase from manual to electronic data processing. We are in balanced combination of simple, moral, responsive and transparent governance and IT tools and techniques. However a lot of scope is still there to do more and to imply IT in various governmental departments and domains. In the same sequence we can use artificial intelligence along with cloud computing to improve Indian Judicial system. Or we can say that the concept of e-courts can be enhanced by implying AI tools and techniques. The judiciary is in the early stages of a transformation in which AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology will help to make the judicial process faster, cheaper, and more predictable without compromising the integrity of judges’ discretionary reasoning. In this paper I have proposed a solution where judicial system with AI contributes to a process that encompasses such a wide range of knowledge, judgment, and experience. It have two more practical goals: producing tools to support judicial activities, including programs for intelligent document assembly, case retrieval, and support for discretionary decision-making; and developing new analytical tools for understanding and modeling the judicial process.
