Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday informed that the Assam government will add over 100 new positions to the lower judiciary in an effort to speed up the justice process in the state.

The chief minister stated that the Center has granted Rs 9,000 crore for the improvement of the judicial system, with Assam receiving its fair share of roughly Rs 300 crore. He declared this while speaking in Guwahati at the Bar Council of Assam, Nagaland, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, and Sikkim’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration.

The Assam government will also contribute an additional Rs 300 crore in this regard, he added.

According to the chief minister, the Assam government is also considering a number of support programmes for people who decide to stop actively practising.

Despite being victims of circumstances, he added, many people are reluctant to seek legal support since, because of the drawn-out nature of the court system, seeking justice is frequently an expensive endeavour.

Furthermore, the Gauhati High Court Museum, which was established at the old block of the Guwahati High Court grounds, was officially launched earlier in the day in front of the chief minister by Union Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju.

The museum has a variety of relics on display, including handwritten copies of the Indian Constitution, judicial wigs, robes, and litho machines, among other things.
