Also, there are orders given to the Judges on different dates of the case (Orders like the framing of charges, non-attendance of accused, judgment, etc). So, it is the right of the parties to the case to know what is being submitted in the Court by the opposite or what order has been given by the Court, which they can acquire in the form of Certified Copies. So for this Parties to the case have to follow the proper way of getting those documents or orders given by the court, which is in the form of certified copy by submitting the nominal fees of ₹10, which is in the form of stamp duty. A certified copy is generally obtained by an advocate of the parties and not by the parties themselves.

To obtain a certified copy, the person has to fill out the form associated with a certified copy and has to submit it before the court. The court then within prescribed time issues a certified copy of any document or any other required order etc.
