Establishment of Circuit Bench of Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri

Establishment of Circuit Bench of Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri

The Union Cabinet on 06 Feb approved the setting up of a circuit bench of the Calcutta High Court at West Bengal's Jalpaiguri.

The bench will have jurisdiction over four districts: Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Jalpaiguri and Cooch Behar.

What is Circuit Bench?

A Circuit Bench is for territories which are far flung but do not have too many matters to justify a full-fledged permanent bench.

For example, the Karnataka High Court has circuit Benches in Gulbarga and Dharwad which were later on in 2013, converted into permanent Benches.
