The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the signing of MoU in the field of judicial cooperation between India and the Judicial Service Commission of Maldives.
This is the eighth MoU signed between India and other countries in the field of judicial cooperation.
This MoU will provide a platform to tap the benefits of Information Technology for court digitisation and can be a potential growth area for the IT companies and start-ups in both the countries.
