She inspected various sections of the court complex and reviewed working and the infrastructure availability in the District court complex.
Judges of the subordinate courts, advocates and other members of Bar Association apprised her of the various demands and issues like establishment of Anti-corruption Court, Consumer Forum/Court, Ladies Bar and Ladies Toilets, Camp Courts at Paddar, non availability of complex hall for the new practioners, no accommodation facility for writers and stamp paper dealers, absence of toilet facilities for women litigants in the court complex among others.
They demanded that the powers of the Anti-corruption Court be vested in the Principle District and Session Judge, Kishtwar as the same will not involve any expenditure or creation of infrastructure.
While interacting with Judges of the subordinate courts, advocates and other members of legal fraternity, she assured them that their genuine demands will be redressed in a time bound manner and asked them for submitting the charter of demands in her office so that the impediments in the dispensation of the justice could be mitigated at the earliest.
She hoped that Judicial Officers will continue to discharge their professional duties with the same zeal, enthusiasm and commitment.
Role of Legal Services Authorities in dispensation of justice in this far flung mountainous area was highly appreciated by the Chief Justice.
