The eastern suburb of Mulund might soon get sessions, civil, consumer and cooperative courts, after chief minister Prithviraj Chavan agreed to construct new buildings to house them.
The decision was taken at a meeting on Monday after local legislator Charan Singh Sapra raised the demand. Chavan asked the public works department (PWD) to prepare a proposal in 15 days to demolish a 90-year-old building and build an administrative tower for the courts.
Sapra said “As we don’t have courts, the people have to travel to other courts in the city. They spend money and time unnecessarily,” he said.
The PWD is expected to make cost estimates and a primary building plan.
