The court will include six police stations � Bijni, Amguri, Dhaligaon, Sidli, Runikhata and Basugaon � under its jurisdiction.
Four courts will run under the District and Sessions Judge SP Moitra, Chief Judicial Magistrate Kumud Chandra Boro, Judicial Magistrate Debasish Kashyap and Muncif S Bhuyan.

Besides, the Gauhati High Court Judge, Administration, Justice T Vaiphei, Bongaigaon District and Sessions Judge Malasri Nandi, Additional District and Sessions Judge Rita Kar and Chief Judicial Magistrate Mausumi De were present in this inauguration.
�Earlier, we had to go to the Bongaigaon court, which is 20 km from Kajalgaon, for legal matters and a lot of time was needed to complete legal formalities,� said Ranjan Bhuyan, the Chirang District Superintendent of Police.
�Since there was no court at the district headquarters, we had to depend on the Bongaigaon court for legal matters and it consumed a lot of money and time. Now this court will help us a lot,� said Gagan Narzary, a resident of Kajalgaon.
