Ahmedabad: Taluka level courts will be set
up in all the 225 blocks of the state during the Golden

Modi was speaking at a function organised in the Gujarat
High Court campus here to observe the 50 years of the Bar
Council of Gujarat (BCG).

Addressing a huge gathering of lawyers from across the
state, Modi said that there was a need to strengthen the legal
system.

"To ensure that every person gets justice through the
legal system, the government would set up courts at taluka
levels in all 225 blocks of the state during the Golden
Jubilee year of the state," Modi said.

The Chief Minister further announced that an e-library
would be set up for all bar associations at taluka levels.

government has already set up institutes like National Law
University and Forensic Science University which would
complement the system and provide the required human
resources.

Over 3500 lawyers, representing all the bar associations
in the state, attended the function which was held in the
Gujarat High Court campus.
