The Centre on Tuesday approved the proposal for setting up permanent Benches of the High Court at Dharwad and Gulbarga districts of Karnataka. 

The proposal was approved at a Union Cabinet meeting, which was chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The move would facilitate speedy disposal of cases, which would in turn bring down the number of pending cases in the High Court.  Permanent Benches of the Karnataka High Court at Dharwad and Gulbarga would also offer litigants from the districts, easy access to justice.  The state government has created requisite infrastructure for setting up the Benches. 

Currently, Judges are sitting at Circuit Benches on a rotational basis for a month. To avoid inconvenience to Judges, advocates and litigants, the Circuit Benches at Dharwad and Gulbarga were proposed to be made permanent.  Earlier, the proposal for setting up permanent Benches of the High Court at Dharwad and Gulbarga had got the approval of the state government and Chief Justice of the Karnataka High Court.
