The Chief Minister further said that the energy of the three organs of Judiciary, Legislature and Bureaucracy keep the democracy dynamic and developing. Judiciary has a prominent position and importance. Then it is our mission to equip the judiciary with necessary infrastructure. This year, the government has given the largest budget of Rs 3 lakh crore in the history of the state and has included infrastructure development in the Vikas Panchasthamba. The Chief Minister also gave the role that the government has made a provision of Rs 2014 crore to make the law department more convenient considering the needs of the judiciary.
This Government is determined to provide a good platform for the Judges and their support staff working in the Judiciary to work well and to provide their families with modern facilities as well as living facilities. To make this noble work worthwhile, in the financial budget of the current year, a substantial amount of Rs. 2,000 crores has been allocated for the facilities of the justice system. In the next five years, the Taluka, District Courts will be equipped with advanced facilities and equipments necessary for technology so that the litigants and lawyers coming to the court will also benefit from the facilities.
Indian Supreme Court Judge M. R. Shah said that it is a unique day for the judiciary of Gandhinagar. The Gujarat government has provided the best modern infrastructure for the judiciary throughout the country. A team of High Court officials from Uttar Pradesh came to study the infrastructure of courts in Gujarat. Impressed by the modern facilities provided by the Gujarat government, when this team presented this report to the Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh, the government there has also decided to provide the best infrastructural facilities like Gujarat in 10 district courts in the first phase. As citizens consider the courts as temples of justice, we must always do more to maintain their trust.
Judge Belabhan Trivedi of the Supreme Court of India said on the occasion of Bhumi Poojan of Naveen Nyaya Mandir that the stronger the foundation stone of any building, the stronger the building will be and this is the Nyaya Mandir, so its sanctity is also necessary. Judiciary has a very important place in the foundation of democracy. While the Gujarat government has always been ready to provide all infrastructure facilities to the judiciary, we all have to do the work of adding justice and divinity to the glory of this temple of justice. Gujarat High Court Acting Chief Justice A. J. Desai said that the new building of the modern district court in the center of Gandhinagar city will provide more flexibility to all. All the facilities have been made available in total eight floors in Naveen Court. Also ADR Center is going to be started in Naveen Court.
