A meeting of the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, gave its approval to the proposal to amend the North-Eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Act, 1971, to set up the separate High Courts in Tripura, Manipur and Meghalaya. All the northeastern states come under the jurisdiction of the Gauhati High Court. Sikkim has a separate High Court.
