Dr.Shashi Tharoor Introduced a Private Member’s Bill in Parliament for HC Bench in Thiruvananthapuram

Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram has taken a fresh initiative to break the almost 50-year-old deadlock on the issue of reinstating a bench of the Kerala High Court in Thiruvananthapuram. He has introduced a private member’s bill in Parliament to enact legislation to provide for establishment of permanent Benches of the High Courts in State capitals where the principal seat or a permanent Bench of the High Court concerned is situated at a place other than the State capital.

A press note issued here on Friday by Mr. Tharoor’s office said if the proposed legislation were to be enacted, it would pave the way for meeting the long-standing demand for the setting up of a Bench of the Kerala High Court in Thiruvananthapuram.

The Bill titled ‘The Establishment of Permanent Benches of High Courts at State Capitals Bill, 2012′ seeks to provide that where the principal seat or a permanent Bench of the High Court of a State is situated at a place other than the State capital, the President may, on recommendation of the State government, by order provide for the establishment of a permanent Bench of that High Court at the State capital, the press note added.

    High court benches are already allocated in neighbouring states viz. Tamilnadu at Madurai, one at Trichy & coimbatore soon to come up; Karnataka at Hubli & Gulbarga; soon to come up at Mangalore also..

    Only in Kerala, some “your honours” at Ernakulam High court are objecting to high court benches at Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode to protect their parallel side “business”. Hope Tharoor able to breakthrough this mafia with his private bill in parliament.
