Separate High Courts for Each of the North Eastern States

The Government has decided to set up separate High Courts for each of the North Eastern States. However, the setting up of separate High Courts is subject to creation of necessary infrastructural facilities by the respective State Government. Giving this information in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today, Shri Salman Khurshid, Minister of Law & Justice, said that as the Governments of Manipur, Meghalaya and Tripura have separately created necessary infrastructural facilities for establishment of separate High Courts in their States, the Government in the Ministry of Home Affairs has moved The North-Eastern Areas (Reorganisaiton) and Other Related Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2012 in the Parliament, to facilitate the process of establishment of High Courts in these 3 States.
