  • This article sheds light on the critical issue of basic amenities in the Nilgiris court complex. It’s disheartening to learn about the challenges faced by the legal fraternity in accessing essential facilities. The Supreme Court’s intervention in seeking a report is a positive step toward addressing these concerns. It is crucial for the authorities to prioritize the well-being of legal professionals and ensure a conducive environment for justice. I hope the findings lead to swift improvements in the Nilgiris court complex.
