The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday reserved its order on a PIL challenging the creation of district Kanshiram Nagar (which has now been renamed Kasganj), on the ground that it did not have proper infrastructure. The petition sought quashing of the notification declaring the new district, which was carved out largely from Etah district, in 2008.
A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Amitava Lala and Justice PKS Baghel reserved the order after reports of the District Judge (Kasganj) and District Magistrate (Kasganj) were submitted before the court in sealed covers. During an earlier hearing on September 5, the court had directed the DJ and the DM to file reports on the current status of financial resources and the infrastructure available with the judiciary and the administration to carry out its functions.
Filed in 2009, the petition had alleged that there was serious lack of financial resources and physical infrastructure for the administration in Kasganj.
