VIJAYAWADA: The Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) is all set to resume mobile court or ‘Court on wheels’ to take up cases related to civic issues and the judgment will be given by the Metro judge at their place itself.
Having a mobile court is not a new concept for the corporation, as it had already worked for a few months in the past; however, it was stopped due to the lethargic attitude of the corporation officials. Now, the municipal commissioner again directed the officials to restart the mobile court to provide quick resolution of problems being faced by the public.
“The court will deal with nuisance issues, unauthorised property, tax defaulters, civic problems and others. Depending on the complaints registered the metro judge in the mobile court will schedule the day and will come to their place to deal with the cases,” said VMC Commissioner G Veerapandian.
The mobile court will function from 9 am to 3 pm six days a week from the next week onwards. The people can also engage a separate advocate at the mobile court. “The corporation’s main focus will be on unauthorised property and the tax defaulters,” said commissioner.
