Govt nod to 150 new judicial posts

Delhi government on Thursday approved the creation of 150 posts of Delhi Judicial and Higher Judicial services with ancillary staff to ensure quick disposal of court cases relating to crimes against women.

At a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, the Delhi cabinet gave its nod for the creation of 50 additional posts of Delhi Higher Juidical Services and 100 posts of Delhi Judicial Services with ancillary staff. The cabinet decision came close on the heels of the announcement of setting up of five fast-track courts for hearing cases relating to crimes against women.

The first of the five courts was inaugurated last week against the backdrop of national outrage against the gang rape of the 23-year-old paramedical student.
