Amid the outrage over brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl, Dikshit last week had requested the Chief Justice of Delhi high court Darmar Murugesan to immediately make functional five fast track courts as per a recommendation of the Delhi government.
Later, the registrar general of the Delhi high court sent a communication to the Delhi government informing that the recommendation for setting up of the fast track courts has been accepted.
"The fast track courts will be operational by January 3 next year," Dikshit said.
Senior officials said the Delhi government will provide all necessary resources for effective functioning of the fast track courts.
The Delhi cabinet in October had approved the proposal to set up the courts and later the decision was conveyed to the high court so that it could make functional the courts.
In her letter, Dikshit had suggested to Justice Murugesan that bail should not be given to those involved in heinous crimes against women.
