The Supreme Court of India tells all States and Union Territories to upload the FIR’s on their websites in 24 hours.        NEW DELHI, SEPTEMBER 7: All States and Union Territories must upload the FIRs on their websites within 24 hours of registration at police stations, a Supreme Court direction said today. However, a bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra and C Nagappan extended the time up to 72 hours for uploading of the FIRs for those states which are located in difficult terrains where internet connectivity is poor. The apex court exempted the state police authorities from uploading the FIRs on sensitive cases pertaining to insurgency and sexual offences against women and children. Also, the accused cannot take benefit before the courts of law of the fact that FIRs lodged against them have not been uploaded on the website, the bench made it clear. Initially, it was suggested during the hearing that the states be allowed to upload FIRs on websites within 48 hours. However, the court later fixed the time limit at 24 hours. The direction came on a PIL filed by Youth Lawyers Association of India on the issue. The PIL referred to a decision passed by the Delhi High Court in which the city police was directed to upload the FIRs on its website within 24 hours of being registered. The apex court agreed to the directions of the HC with certain modifications.  ]]>
