Cabinet okays integrated court management system

The Cabinet, on Wednesday, gave its approval for putting in place the necessary infrastructure in the High Court of Karnataka and its two circuit benches for allowing advocates to argue cases through video conferencing, besides making the courts paperless.

Briefing reporters, Law Minister T B Jayachandra said the Integrated Court Management System will also help litigants access data and retrieve information online – a step toward paperless courts. The Cabinet sanctioned Rs 43.5 crore for the project, which will be completed in three years.

Two pvt varsities approved

The Cabinet approved two private universities – Sri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara University to be set up in Dharwad and Khaja Bandenawaz University in Kalaburagi. Bills to give statutory powers to the two universities will be tabled in the budget session of the legislature.

It also approved cost escalation (from initial Rs 230 crore to Rs 438.04 crore) that occurred during construction of the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi. The Cabinet took the decision following a report by Additional Chief Secretary T M Vijaybhaskar, which stated that no irregularities were involved.

The Cabinet gave its nod to introduce end-to-end automation in Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bengaluru, at a cost of Rs 51.34 crore.
