Kolkata: State Law minister Moloy Ghatak while addressing the Assembly on Tuesday, said 30 per cent seats would be reserved for the state students in West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS) from the next academic year.

While addressing the House, the minister added that a law has already been passed in the Assembly in this regard. Ghatak informed that around 30 per cent of the 127 Bachelor of Laws (LLB) seats and 42 Master of Laws (LLM) seats would be reserved in NUJS for the students domiciled in the state.

The minister also announced before the House that the construction work for setting up of the Calcutta High Court Circuit Bench in Jalpaiguri would commence soon.

The state government has already identified 40-acre land for constructing the circuit bench in Jalpaiguri. The boundary wall around

the plot has already been constructed. The department is now set to float tender for the project, Ghatak informed the House.

The circuit bench was made operational in March this year. It has been operating from a temporary building since then. The Mamata Banerjee government had been instrumental in setting up the circuit bench in North Bengal, keeping in mind a large number of cases in the region.
