CM inspects work on judges' quarters

The chief minister, who inspected the work along with Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court J S Khehar, said work on 11 of 15 quarters planned to be constructed had commenced and construction of all 15 quarters would be completed by March 2012.
The sital area of each of the two-storey quarters is 2,040 square meters (sqm) and built-up area is 1,172 sqm.

The quarters are coming up on a plot where the Karnataka Agro Industries Corporation building was located. The  Government is spending a whopping Rs 55 crore on the project. Initially, the quarters were meant for the Cabinet ministers. But the government decided to hand them over to the judges, after Justice
Khehar  criticised it for not providing land for construction of quarters for judges.


Each of the quarters will have a foyer, living, formal dining, kitchen, breakfast counter, guest bedroom, home office and garage for two vehicles on the ground floor. On the first floor, there will be a master bedroom, children’s bedroom, an additional bedroom, family lounge and sit-out area. Besides, there will be separate two-storey home office attached to every quarters. There will be an aero bridge connecting the main building with the office.

The plan is to have granite flooring, Italian marble for pooja room, Sira stones for portico and ceramic tiles for toilets and bathrooms. All doors and window panels will be of teakwood and windows will have glazed shutters. There will be a LAN point with EPABA facility, decorative fans and solar water heating system, according to a release from the Public Works Department.
