CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has directed the State Law department and its registrar-general to provide all necessary infrastructure facilities to the four newly constituted Family Courts.

The first bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice M Sundar gave the direction while disposing of a PIL from advocate R Chitravelu recently.

The PIL prayed for a direction to the government to constitute additional Family Courts to reduce the pendency of matrimonial cases and to render succour to the affected persons.

Meanwhile, the government constituted four more Family Courts, all located on the High Court campus. The judges noted that the process of appointing judges and other staff members to the new courts is being initiated.

Advocate R Y George Williams pointed out that the courts are lacking in infrastructural, staff and other facilities. But he was not specific with regard to exactly what the shortcoming was. “Be that as it may, steps shall be taken to ensure that the courts, which have been inaugurated recently, are provided with all usual facilities for their proper functioning,” the bench said and disposed of the PIL.
