ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 11-92
 
RE: DESIGNATION OF REGIONAL TRIAL COURT BRANCH NUMBERS.   

In view of the enactment of Republic Act No. 7154 increasing the number of the Regional Trial Court Branches in the thirteen [13] judicial regions and mandating the renumbering of these Branches, the implementation of Republic Act No. 7154 pursuant to Secs. 14 and 15 thereof is hereby effected in accordance with the following guidelines:chanroblesvirtuallawlibrary  

[1] The numbers of all Branches of the Regional Trial Courts in the thirteen [13] regions shall henceforth be changed from Roman numbers and follow the Arabic numeral system;  

[2] The present numbering of every existing RTC Branch as provided for in B. P. 129 shall be maintained but in Arabic numeral system;  

[3] The present seats established under B. P. 129 and administrative orders issued by the Supreme Court shall likewise be maintained;  

[4] The new Branches in every region shall follow the sequence of the existing branch numbers in the order prescribed in B. P. 129, with the new numbers for every region corresponding to the increased branches to begin with the region. Thus, in the National Capital Region, with the present complement of 172 Branches and increased by one hundred four (104) Branches under Republic Act No. 7154, the new Branches will be designated as Branches 173 to 276, and distributed among the principal seats established under B. P. 129 as amended by R. A. 7154; and  

[5] The additional Branches provided for under Republic Act No. 7154 shall be organized and the appointment of the Presiding Judges thereof shall be considered by the Judicial and Bar Council only after a study of the existing case dockets, demographic conditions, and available resources of the local government units shows that there is a need for the additional Branches to be operational.cralaw
