Despite the state government approving Rs 15 crores for a new civil court, the court is yet to take form. The Vashi civil court at CBD faces the problem of space crunch, with files lying on the floor and no arrangement for sitting also. The Lawyers Association in Navi Mumbai is awaiting the new civil court despite the state approving Rs 15 crores for the same. The Lawyer’s Association had met with former Finance Minister Dilip Walse Patil, Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik and CIDCO administration and demanded for a civil court. Fulfilling their demands, the state government approved Rs 15 crores and CIDCO allotted a 19,400 sq mt lan in sector 15 CBD for the purpose. On the lines of Mumbai, the court in Navi Mumbai was to have a total of 32 courts which included civil, criminal, labor and family court which was estimated at Rs 50-55 crores. But with no work starting, the proposal is hanging in the air. With delay in the formation of new courts, the existing small one has become a hassle for all. With space crunch, files are lying on the floor in huge piles awaiting justice. There is no adequate sitting arrangement for visitors, lawyers or even criminals. With the delay, the lawyers association is now planning to meet the new Finance Minister for which they have even written a letter to Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik.
