Udupi court complex phase II opens

Speaking after inaugurating the second stage of Udupi district Court complex built at the cost of Rs 1.2 crore here, he said the present judicial officers enjoyed better salaries, infrastructure and other benefits than those about 10 years ago. The Bar members should strengthen the judiciary by quick disposal of pending cases so that the litigants could repose faith on the judicial system.

To overcome the situation, alternative dispute redressal mechanism has been introduced under which the advocates were made to participate with proper training as moderators in the Lok Adalat and called upon that more number of advocates should enroll themselves in the training programme so that the cases could be disposed in the Lok Adalat through compromise, he added.

Home Minister Dr V S Acharya with the completion of the second stage of the project, the Udupi district court complex has now nine judges and 10 court hall. As there are sufficient numbers of pending domestic and family dispute cases, a court hall could be dedicated as family dispute court to deal only with such family dispute cases. He would speak to Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Kumar on this matter, he said and urged Rahim to look into it.

Acharya said that in view of the shortage of quarters for judicial officers in Udupi, a decision to sanction one acre government land is taken after consulting the district administration.  
Udupi-Chikamagalur MP D V Sadananda Gowda, Karkala MLA Gopal Bhandari and others were present.
