The Supreme Court of India on July 16, 2021, announced that a system for safe digital transmission of its bail orders to jails across the country will be implemented so that authorities do not have to wait for authentic orders to release prisoners.

A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana directed the Secretary-General of the Supreme Court to submit a proposal on the safe digital transmission of its bail orders scheme and said it may be implemented within a month.

The bench requested the states to provide information on the availability of internet connection in jails in India as without an internet connection the transmission of orders to prisons will not be possible.

Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave was appointed as an amicus curiae to aid with implementing the scheme.
