One of the major reasons of the very low disposal rate of Indian Judiciary is the lack of adherence to the procedural time and lack of infrastructure. The electronic methods are the way forward. The paper traces the development of accepting the different mode of summoning from SMS to FAX to email and then to WhatsApp and then developing the electronic Application. The paper would also try to extract the principles on which the courts have allowed the e summons in India and abroad and its recent developments in the country looking through the state of Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan. The paper would also try to shed some light on validity of e-summons in the background of international treaties. The paper tries to discuss the shortcomings and the pitfalls of e-summons in India in light of the huge socio-economic gap in India.
