Goa doesn’t need a separate HC

Margao, August 23 (Agencies): An independent high court is not necessary for a small state like Goa that handles less than 5,000 cases, said Bombay high court Chief Justice Mohit Shah on Saturday.

Justice Shah said that an independent high court would only result in Goa losing the advantage of having judges from Mumbai, Nagpur and Aurangabad and the high court of Bombay at Goa would immensely benefit from the exchange of judges, while speaking to the media after inaugurating the 'Moot court' hall of the Govind Ramnath Kare College of Law, Margao, on Saturday.

When inquired if he had been approached to head the vacant position of the Goa Lokayukta, Shah replied in the negative. He said his tenure will expire on September 8 and added that he had not thought about it, so he was not likely to speculate if he was approached.

Shah also said that Goa is a nice place to visit and that he had no proposal to settle down.
