HYDERABAD: The tenure of 108 Fast-Track Courts in the state will be extended for another year, law minister Erasu Pratap Reddy has said.

Releasing Prosecutors Diary-2012 in his chamber at the Secretariat here on Monday, the minister recalled that the government had extended the tenure of the Fast-Track Courts for one year last year.

With the extended tenure coming to an end now, the government has decided to extend their tenure by one more year.

All Fast-Track Courts would be converted as regular courts in phases which would place a Rs 95-crore burden on the government every year, he said, adding that five to ten fast track courts would be converted as regular courts soon.

As many as 10 lakh cases were pending in lower courts and 2.5 lakh in the High Court, he said and underlined the need for the disposal at the earliest.

Nearly 400 vacancies in various categories in the courts will be filled up shortly.

The government has decided to set up 180 Grama Nyayalayalu thoughout the state.
