necessity for submitting an ATR with it.

Courts Bill, 2009, aiming at formation of special courts for speedy
disposal of commercial cases, in Lok Sabha this week.

The commercial divisions of the High Courts will take up cases worth

disposal of such cases which otherwise take the normal time taking

Judges with aptitude in accountancy and commercial matters will be
allocated to this division in various high courts. The Ministry of Law
and Justice has already sent the bill for cabinet approval.

increasing ceiling in NCT areas, is being introduced tomorrow in Lok

session are Civil Defence Amendment Bill, which focuses on imparting

there was no plan to conclude it early.
