The decision was taken by Delhi High Court Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and other judges of the high court. As per an administrative order issued by the high court registrar, ASJ and Special Judge Saini shall start functioning immediately along with his present duties and shall control the administrative functions pertaining to Rouse Avenue Court Complex under the supervision of the building maintenance and construction committee (BMCC - Rouse Avenue Court Complex).
