States have generally been demanding financial assistance for Family Courts. Recently, a specific request has been received from the Government of Tripura for setting up one Family Court at the State capital Agartala. The Government of Tripura has requested for releasing the 50 per cent shares of the amount of Rs. 24.88 lakhs for setting up of one Family Court.

On the basis of recommendation made by the Parliamentary Committee on Empowerment of Women, the matter has been taken up with all the State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations to set up more Family Courts to speed up disposal of family disputes. In order to encourage and assist the States in setting up more Family Courts, fifty percent Central grant is being extended to them for the establishment and running of new Family Courts which are now being set up during the year 2002-2003.

This information was given by the Union Minister of Law, Justice and Company Affairs, Shri Arun Jaitley in a written reply to a question from Shri Anandrao Vithoba Adsul in the Lok Sabha today.
