    Karnataka govt plans a ten-storey building for Karnataka High Court

    This submission was made during a High Court session on September 21

    Two PILs had advocated for relocating High Court offices to new location

The Karnataka government has put forth a plan for the construction of a ten-storey building to expand the Karnataka High Court.

On August 14, 2023, the High Court issued a directive stipulating that three proposals must be presented to the Chief Minister for review and decision-making.

Two public interest litigations (PILs) have advocated for relocating the offices currently situated in the High Court’s basement to a new location.

One of the proposals being presented to the Chief Minister, among others, involves the construction of a ten-storey building for the High Court’s expansion.

This submission was made during a High Court session on September 21. In response to this statement, a division bench of the High Court, consisting of Chief Justice Prasanna B Varale and Justice Krishna S Dixit, adjourned the hearing of the PILs for a period of four weeks.

The High Court’s record from September 21 indicates, “Based on the instructions and orders of this court dated August 14, 2023, the state government has initiated three proposals. Additionally, a new proposal has also emerged, suggesting the construction of a ten-story high-rise building. This proposal for a ten-storey building is among those being considered.”

Furthermore, the High Court issued additional instructions, stating, “The learned Additional Advocate General has informed us that all these proposals will be submitted to the Registry of this Court within one week from September 21. We accept this statement as a commitment to this court and direct the Registrar General to present these proposals to the Building Committee of this court once they are received.”
