Five-member committee to visit Vijayawada next week for housing High Court

Friday, January 12, 2018

The five-member committee of judges constituted by the Acting Chief Justice of High Court is likely to visit next week a few buildings in Vijayawada where temporary High Court for Andhra Pradesh is proposed to be located.

The committee will report to the Acting Chief Justice on the buildings that are suitable for establishing the temporary High Court which is expected to be completed by June this year. According to sources, Acharya Nagarjuna University, a ready-to-occupy building near Gannavaram was originally planned to be left out to IT companies, a few buildings in a private college at Ibrahimpatnam, and the district court buildings in Guntur are among the choices before the committee.

The State government has identified land and finalized the designs for the High Court building in the proposed Justice City, but it is apparently in a hurry to make the court functional from the temporary premises till the permanent facility gets ready.
