Thirty seven years after the district court of Gurgaon was shifted to the present building near Rajiv Chowk in 1975, the complex got its first medical dispensary on Friday. A one-room dispensary was inaugurated in the court complex by Punjab and Haryana High Court judge MM Kumar during an annual inspection.

The dispensary will have a general Outpatient Department (OPD), a doctor and pharmacist.

The medical service will be open for lawyers, litigants and judicial staff from Monday to Saturday between 10am to 5pm Justice Kumar also launched a wheelchair service for differently-abled litigants. Five wheelchairs, donated by Red Cross Society, will be kept near the ramps of court number 3 and 8.

Six working days

Justice Kumar rejected the demand of over 100 employees from establishment, accounts and judicial departments to reduce the number of working days from six to five days a week.
