As of May 2022, over 4.7 crore cases are pending
in courts across different levels of the judiciary. This has
resulted in a ponderous burden on the Indian judiciary
system. According to Experts the reason why we have this
problem is due to lack of infrastructure in the Indian
Judiciary System. With this study I build a machine
learning model that can determine the applicable Indian
Penal Code according to the description provided by the
user. I have used two machine learning approaches, one vs
rest and one vs one multi-class classification. The one vs rest
classification using Logistic Regression has a 99% accuracy
on training data.
