Nagpur: Umrer a suburb area in Nagpur will soon have a civil court. The state cabinet on Wednesday at its meeting in Mumbai gave approval for setting up of a civil court (senior level) there. This new court is being set up as part of the government’s policy to make judicial system more broad-based, making it accessible to people.
Litigants from Umrer as well as Kuhi and Bhiwapur talukas will no longer have to travel all the way to the district headquarters of Nagpur where the district court is located. This will spare them a travel of 50km a side for attending court matters. The new court will have jurisdiction over the three talukas. As many as 2,084 pending cases from the courts in Nagpur will be transferred to the proposed Umrer civil court.
As per the recommendation of high-level secretaries’ committee which studied the matter, a staff of 19 has been sanctioned for the court and was given approval by the cabinet. It also approved an annual recurring cost of Rs92.5 lakh and a non-recurring Rs20.10 lakh for the purpose. Services of security, caretaker and housekeeping are to be outsourced.
In another decision, cabinet approved regularization of 17 posts of assistant professors and dental surgeons for the incumbents holding acting charge of the posts in government dental hospitals or dental department of government medical colleges across the state.
It includes eight posts of assistant professors and nine of dental surgeons. This has been done as an extraordinary and special case for the persons holding these charges on selection of departmental selection board. The benefits of the regular posts will be given from the date of publication of the government order, not retrospectively.
In another decision, it has been decided to pay an additional Rs30 per quintal to paddy for the crop harvested in kharif and rabi seasons in 2016-17. Earlier, the government was paying Rs10 per quintal.
