Jammu: The Jammu and Kashmir administration on Saturday allotted additional 250 kanal land to the High Court in Bemina area of Srinagar to expand judicial infrastructure.
The Administrative Council (AC) which met here today under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, G C Murmu, approved allotment of additional 250 Kanal land at Rakh-i-Gund Akshan, Bemina, Srinagar for expansion of Judicial Infrastructure including construction of New High Court Complex, an official spokesperson said.
The new allotment, he said comes in addition to the 250 Kanals of land that was transferred to the High Court earlier in December 2019.
“The creation of Judicial Infrastructure on land aggregating to 500 Kanals at Rakh-i-Gund Akshan is expected to meet twin objectives of decongesting the Srinagar city while strengthening the Judicial Infrastructure which will house diverse ancillary legal facilities at one place,” the official spokesperson said.
As per the requisition by the department, the official spokesperson said, the additional land is needed not only for the construction of High Court Complex but also to develop allied infrastructure like mediation centre, arbitration centre, litigant’s facility, food court, police and security infrastructure, staff accommodation for judicial administration, utility buildings, convention facilities, parking spaces and spaces for fire station.
