The Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the Promulgation of the Daman and Diu Civil Courts (Amendment) Regulation, 2019 and the Dadra and Nagar Haveli (Civil Courts and Miscellaneous Provisions) Amendment Regulation, 2019 under Article 240 of the Constitution.
According to the Cabinet, the promulgations will bring uniformity in the judicial services. It will also help overcome the difficulties being faced by the litigants in travelling to Mumbai for filing appeals due to the existing limited pecuniary jurisdiction.
"Enhanced pecuniary jurisdiction will accelerate the justice delivery system, besides making access easier for litigants without having to travel outside the Union Territory (UT)," a government statement said.
