Chandigarh, May 30 (UNI) Union Law and Justice Minister Hans Raj Bhardwaj today said that ''a way was being found out'' to set up a separate High Court for Haryana.
The Union Minister, while speaking at the inauguration of a Rs 1.10 crore new Bar Complex in Rohtak today, said that in view of Haryana government's persistent demand for a separate High Court, all possible efforts were being made to set up a separate High Court for Haryana.
Apart from the new Bar Complex, a litigants hall and a 'Malkhana' were jointly inaugurated by Dr. Hans Raj Bhardwaj, Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court, Justice Vijender Jain and Chief Minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

He announced to give Rs 20 lakh out of his discretionary funds for purchase of books for the library of lawyers and assured that efforts would be made to computerise the library.
The Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court Justice Vijender Jain said that Haryana would be ahead of other states in judicial system as it was the first State where basic infrastructure has been strengthened in judicial complexes.
Speaking in the occasion, Mr Hooda said that till date 3552 lok adalats have been organised in which about eight lakh cases have been resolved. Also, 14 fast track courts have been set up in the State. Judicial Complexes have been set up in 18 out of 21 districts of the State.
