This could have been a useful website to keep track of forest related cases that come up before the Supreme Court and the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) that advises it on such matters.

The site has options to search court orders from 1990 onwards, and look at the CEC's minutes and orders. But none of the links work except for the one to supreme court orders in forests matters. And this was last updated in September 2008. The information on court orders is not ordered for easy access.

Unless one knows the specific appeal number, finding the information would be quite laborious. All links to the CEC's orders, reports and minutes give the same message--under construction.

The only other information available is the list of people who constitute the CEC and the contact information for the CEC.
