HC, accommodation for judges likely come up in a 100-acre site

The High Court of Andhra Pradesh is likely to come up in the upcoming capital of Amaravathi, alongside other State establishments such as Raj Bhavan, Secretariat and Assembly.

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu reportedly made this clear during a meeting with advocates from the State recently, and did not want the issue to be complicated in any manner whatsoever.

Sources said the Chief Minister is keen on setting at rest any speculation over the location of the new High Court in Andhra Pradesh. With advocates in several cities, particularly Guntur and Kurnool, nursing their own claims, Mr. Naidu reportedly wants to give no scope for any competitive lobbying.

Andhra Pradesh Bar Council member S. Rajendra Prasad told The Hindu that there would be no opposition in the legal fraternity to locating the High Court in the State capital.

Lawyers elsewhere would be content if benches were set up at Visakhapatnam and Kurnool, thus serving the interests of all the regions of the State.

It is reliably learnt that the High Court and accommodation for judges will come up in a 100-acre site in Amaravathi. Relevant departments are said to be surveying the land.
