Mumbai: Maharashtra Government has decided
to set up 25 new rural courts in remote places having no
judicial facility.
The decision was taken at the cabinet meeting held here
today. The Centre has already approved Rs 18 lakh as initial
fund for each of the courts, an official from the Law and
Judicial Department said.
The project, initiated last year, deals with local level
criminal and civil cases. One of the highlights of these
courts is that they use simple language for easy understanding
of the people, the official said.

Ralegansiddhi (Ahmednagar), Kharavali (Raigad-Alibaug),
Gadchandur (Chandrapur), Nizampur (Dhule), Pali (Ratnagiri),
Uralikanchan (Pune) villages were the first to have the rural
courts as a part of the project, the official added.
