Noida: The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP RERA) has announced its plans to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into the quasi-judicial process of e-Courts. The authority has invited expressions of interest (EOI) to leverage AI and machine learning (ML) technologies in various stages of the judicial process, including complaint filing, case prioritization, notifications, and case tracking.
Established in 2017, UP RERA aims to regulate the rapidly expanding real estate sector, promote transparency, safeguard homebuyers’ interests, and expedite dispute resolutions between consumers and builders. By adopting emerging technologies such as AI, ML, and natural language processing (NLP), UP RERA seeks to develop an ‘Intelligent Quasi-Judicial System – Smart Court’ to facilitate efficient, fair, and expeditious processing of complaints.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitization of e-Courts, leading to the establishment of virtual courts and the adoption of online dispute resolution mechanisms. AI is expected to play a crucial role in enhancing and strategizing the capabilities of the online platform and system.
AI harnesses the power of big data, machine learning, neural networks, pattern recognition, self-learning, predictive analytics, data science, and natural language processing to perform complex tasks efficiently. Machine learning and deep learning algorithms can assist in scheduling hearings, creating cause lists, and reviewing evidentiary documents in real-time.
AI and ML can also enhance simpler tasks such as intelligent complaint filing, case prioritization, notifications, and case tracking. As the quasi-judicial system evolves, AI technology holds the potential to contribute to three main system categories: supportive systems for users, function-based automation systems to replace routine jobs, and autonomous systems to assist presiding officers in decision-making.
UP RERA has advertised the EOI in national dailies in Hindi and English. Interested consultants can download the EOI document from the official UP RERA website. The document contains information about qualification criteria, submission requirements, objectives, scope of work, and evaluation criteria. The deadline for submission of EOI is May 26, and consultants can submit their proposals online through the UP RERA web portal.
By embracing AI in the judicial process, UP RERA aims to streamline operations, expedite case resolution, and enhance the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the quasi-judicial system.
