Justice Rajiv Bhalla of the Punjab and Haryana high court, who is also the inspecting judge of the Jalandhar division inspected the new judicial complex at Nakodar and has ordered the district and sessions judge to allot sitting space to typists, stamp vendors and photostat operators.
Addressing members of the Nakodar bar association, he said that there was sufficient space in the corridors of the judicial complex and that there was no possibility of any encroachment as these persons are not licensees.

Earlier district and sessions judge JS Kular, additional civil judge Charanjit Arora, civil judge Jatinderpal Singh, Nakodar SDM Hardeep Singh Dhaliwal. DSP HS Hundal and office bearers of the bar association welcomed justice Bhalla.
