New Delhi, Jul 26 (UNI) The Delhi High Court has joined the energy saving drive by deciding to minimise the consumption of electricity in its own court rooms.

The High Court registrar has issued all courts a circular directing that as soon as the judge leaves the court all extra lights should be switched off to save energy in view of the power crisis in the capital.

The rooms of the High Court are considerably large and the entire building is air conditioned. The 35 court rooms spread over three floors are not always functioning but the lights are kept on.

To curb the wasteful expenditure of electricity, the registrar has also issued directions to switch off the computers when they are not in use.

Action would be taken against the court staff who are found violating the directions.
