morning courts

16 September 2010

The Bombay High Court has cleared the way to set up 124 morning courts in Maharashtra by next week, with 20 being based in Mumbai. The courts will operate between 8am and 10am to increase the caseload the courts are able to handle, reported the Times of India. Maharashtra received Rs 542 crore ($117m) of a Rs 5,000 crore budget to modernise the courts, of which Rs 297 crore will go towards establishment of out-of-hour courts in the next five years, according to the paper.

Less than a month ago the Maharashtra and Goa Bar Council resolved to oppose to establishment of evening courts, which would unduly burden advocates.
