High Court permits canteen construction in Cubbon Park
Bangalore, August 24, DH News Service:

The High Court on Monday gave permission for the construction of a canteen on the Cubbon Park premises.

The Advocates Association had filed an Interlocutory Application for the High Court to give permission for the construction of a canteen and the Court had asked Chairman of the High Court Building Committee, Justice V Gopala Gowda, President of Advocates’ Association K N Puttegowda, Registrar General R B Budihal, Advocate General Ashok Harnahalli and senior counsel Nanjunda Reddy to inspect the place and submit a report.

The report was filed in the court on Monday, which stated that a permanent structure would cost Rs 60-70 lakh.

The division bench consisting of Chief Justice P D Dinakaran and Justice V S Sabhahit said that the report had been accepted by the State government and the government had proposed to put up a permanent full-fledged modern canteen at a minimum cost of Rs 75 lakh for the benefit of members of the Court, litigant public, staff and the press.

Appreciating this, the Chief Justice said, “In view of the matter, we do not see any impediment in granting permission for the proposed canteenm which shall be started and completed within the time schedule.”

He also said that a technical expert had to oversee the construction to avoid cutting of trees as much as possible and to maintain an eco-friendly atmosphere.
