The caliber of Nepal's communications infrastructure has dramatically improved in recent years. The extension of the e-governance agenda to the judicial system has led directly to the adoption of technology in courtrooms. Over the past five years, the Supreme Court of Nepal has consistently worked to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the administration of justice by utilizing cutting-edge technology. It just authorized the use of video conferencing technology to record witness testimony for the first time in its rule. This study aimed out to examine the current state of virtual trial in Nepal as well as its potential future directions. In order to achieve this goal, the study concentrated on the most promising application areas in light of the software and technology that are currently used in the Nepalese legal system. There were also some suggestions for incorporating cutting-edge technologies.
