BHUBANESWAR: The Odisha Government, which has identified 26 judicial premises as heritage buildings, has drawn up an elaborate action plan to maintain the sites.
 
A State-level monitoring committee had decided that buildings, which were constructed prior to 1950, be designated as heritage structures. After an elaborate consultation with the Archaeological Survey of India, 26 premises were listed as heritage buildings to be covered under the conservation and maintenance programme.
 
The Orissa High Court building is one among the list besides a host of judicial premises, including the Red Court building in Sambalpur, Additional District Judge Court building in Parlakhemundi and Munsif Court in Panikoili of Jajpur.
 
The Thirteenth Finance Commission had provided Rs 14.98 crore to the Odisha Government towards maintenance of the heritage buildings of the State Judiciary.
 
The monitoring committee, which met recently, also reviewed the five-year action plan, prepared by the Chief Engineer of Buildings, for maintenance of the heritage structures.
 
It was agreed at the meeting that some buildings would just need one-time investment for maintenance without requiring any further funds in the future. The committee suggested that surplus funds to the tune of Rs 7.48 crore should be utilised for infrastructure development. As per the decision, Rs 6 crore will be allotted to the Judicial Academy while Rs 1.48 crore will go towards establishment of alternative dispute resolution centres.
 
The five-year action plan for maintenance of the heritage buildings has earmarked Rs 4.5 crore for the Orissa High Court while the District Court of Cuttack has been allotted Rs 39 lakh.
