A new building of the Telangana High Court will be constructed on 100 acres of land at Rajendra Nagar on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy directed the officials concerned on Thursday to make required arrangements to lay the foundation stone next month.
He held a review on the construction of a new high court building, attended by Chief Justice of Telangana High Court Justice Alok Aradhe and top officials at the MCRHRD Institute of Telangana in Hyderabad.
The Chief Justice and lawyers brought to the notice of the Chief Minister the necessity of constructing a new building in view of the dilapidation of the existing High Court building.
They requested the CM to grant adequate funds for the construction of a new High Court on a sprawling 100 acres in Rajendra Nagar area.
The CM responded positively and ordered the officials to make necessary arrangements.
Since the present High Court building is listed as a heritage structure, the CM said there is a need to preserve the building. He assured that the existing building will be renovated and used for city court or other court buildings.
The Chief Justice and lawyers also requested the CM to take initiative for the construction of court complexes in the new districts.
