New high court building to be inaugurated in Goa's Porvorim on March 27 amid rising corona cases

The first meeting in the new building has been scheduled to be held for 28 March.

Expanding the operations of the state judiciary, Goa is all set to inaugurate a new high court building in Porvorim. As per reports, the Chief Justice of India shall be cutting strings for the launch of the new campus amidst the presence of other eminent officials on March 27. Given the increasing cases of COVID-positive patients in the neighbouring state of Maharashtra, authorities in Goa have deployed an agile and stringent check to assure that the event is conducted safely.

Chief Minister & Union Law Minister amongst the list of over 500 invitee

Reportedly, the special function will bring together 5 other judges from the Supreme Court and 62 judges from the Bombay High Court, its benches in the state of Maharastra and the high court seat in Goa. While invitations have been sent to about 500 guests, it is also anticipated that Goa's Chief Minister and Union Law Minister shall also grace the event. With the high count of attendees, the fear of COVID spread has also amplified.

Keeping this in view, the authorities have mandated that all COVID safety measures must be strictly adhered to. Despite this, there are prospects that the spiralling up of COVID numbers in the coming week might hamper the event. Though Maharastra has recorded an all-time high COVID spike, the state authorities in Goa aren't deliberating on imposing a ban on tourist entry.

First Meeting in the new building on 28 March

On 28th March, a meeting has been scheduled to be held in the new building. It will be marked by the presence of a high number of judges and court officials. At this event, the building staff will ensure that all necessary precautions are undertaken. Also, there will be specific arrangements for PT-PCR tests of judges who have to return to Mumbai. It is to be noted that Mumbai has implemented a strict Negative COVID report policy for all travellers from Goa.
