Circuit Bench of Calcutta High Court

Shri Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice, has informed Parliament that the Government of West Bengal had sent a proposal for establishment of a Circuit Bench of the Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri. The Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court had inspected the infrastructural facilities provided by the State Government at Jalpaiguri for establishment of the temporary Circuit Bench till the permanent building of the Circuit Bench is ready. However, in his opinion, the infrastructural facilities provided for establishment of the temporary Circuit Bench in the Jalpaiguri Zilla Parishad Dak Bungalow are neither satisfactory nor the premises suitable, even for a temporary period. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Shri Salman Khurshid said that the space and accommodation provided is also insufficient. He said that the Government of West Bengal have been requested to create all the necessary infrastructure facilities.
