Chandigarh, September 13

To provide easy and speedy justice in the rural areas, in compliance with the directives of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has ordered the establishment of seven more 'Gram Nyayalayas' (village courts) in the state.

The new nyayalayas would be set up at Patran in Patiala district, Tapa in Barnala, Bassi Pathana in Fatehgarh Sahib, Dera Baba Nanak and Dhar Kalan in Gurdaspur, Raikot in Ludhiana and Chamkaur Sahib in Rupnagar. These nyayalayas will cover only the gram panchayats of the sub-divisions and not towns, as per the proposal cleared by the Department of Home Affairs and Justice.

With this, the number of such courts in the state will go up to nine, as two village courts at Kot Isse Khan in Moga district and Nangal in Rupnagar are already functional. — TNS
