To receive these services, the person acquiring them must belong to the following categories: His Honour Judge S.P. Bharucha, Executive Chairman of NALSA, has repeatedly asked the State Legal Service to continue to maintain Lok Adalats under the old model so that the pace of Lok Adalats processing cases is not hindered. Permanent and continuous Lok Adalats are mainly aimed at resolving disputes in the pre-litigation phase and more contentious cases pending before the district courts, where the parties can only be motivated by repeated meetings in order to reach an agreement. The advisory and mediation bodies in the districts and the permanent Lok Adalats in the districts can be brought together under one roof and work effectively in harmony. The most important contribution of the legal services authorities to the administration of justice would be the settlement of disputes by Lok Adalats in the pre-litigation phase, so that the influx of cases into our already overburdened courts is reduced as much as possible. Most government legal services offices are now equipped with fax machines, computers and e-mail services. These modern arrangements will certainly help legal advisers to act quickly to provide legal assistance and meaningful assistance to the persons in question. Under the chairmanship of the then Honorable Executive President, Justice Altamas Kabir, the following innovative measures were introduced into the operation of NALSA: – The law provides for a national network for the provision of legal aid and assistance.

The National Legal Services Authority is the governing body responsible for establishing guidelines and principles for the provision of legal services in accordance with the provisions of the law and for developing the most efficient and cost-effective systems for legal services. In addition, funds and grants are provided to public legal services and NGOs for the implementation of mutual legal assistance programmes and programmes. The Legal Aid Counsel program, designed and implemented by His Lordship the Honourable Justice A.S. Anand when His Lordship was Executive Chair, has been well received across the country. Legal assistance has been provided in most of the country`s courts of first instance to provide immediate legal assistance to prisoners who are unable to hire their own lawyer. The National Legal Services Authority of India was established under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987 to create a national network providing competent legal services free of charge to the weaker sections of society. The Authority did not enter into force until November 1995. The section headings in this policy are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The Website, Learning Site, Forum, and any third-party services that use them may be subject to additional terms relating to privacy and use of information. Your use of the Site and Forum is subject to these Terms and Conditions, which are incorporated by reference into this Policy. In the event of any conflict between this Policy and any posted additional terms, the provisions of the Additional Terms shall control.

Permanent and continuous Lok Adalats are established in all districts of the country. NALSA has provided funding to state legal aid agencies to implement legal aid programs and programs and will continue to do so, but the infrastructure must be provided by state governments. Separate permanent and continuous locomotive adalats in ministries aim to settle pending cases amicably as well as cases in the pre-litigation phase between ministries and the public, thus reducing the flow of disputes before the ordinary courts. In so many government bodies, these Adalat locomotives have become functional. In Delhi, permanent locomotive adalats have been established at the Delhi Vidyut Board, Delhi Development Authority, Municipal Corpn. of Delhi, MTNL and General Insurance Corpn. These locomotive adalats are becoming more and more popular day by day, and it is expected that very soon a large number of disputes between public and judicial authorities will be resolved in the pre-litigation phase itself, in order to spare the parties unnecessary costs and contentious inconveniences. In other states, state legal services agencies have also taken steps to sue state governments. and legal bodies, etc., to establish separate permanent locomotive adalats for the amicable settlement of their disputes. In his letter published in “Nyaya Deep” and in his keynote address to the meeting of secretaries members at the NALSA office on 19.2.2000, Mr. Justice S.

P. Bharucha, Executive Chairman of NALSA, stressed the need to improve the quality of legal aid provided by lawyers. His Lordship noted that millions of people in this country, living below the poverty line in backward and remote tribal areas, turn to legal services authorities for help and assistance in resolving their legal problems. When they are involved in litigation, they very often feel that they are fighting an unequal battle in which the party with better financial resources can get more competent legal assistance. His Lordship believes that these poor and weaker strata should not give the impression that they receive comparatively inferior legal assistance. His Lordship has asked the legal services authorities to revise the remuneration schedule for Legal Aid Board lawyers and tighten them up so that the lawyers of the Unit receive more work and better remuneration from the legal aid authorities and thus be encouraged to provide effective legal assistance to those supported.

The Honourable Justice S.P. Bharucha, executive chairman of NALSA, stressed at the working session of the second annual meeting of the state legal services authorities in Hyderabad that counseling and mediation centers should be established in all districts of the country to reach a negotiated solution to disputes between the parties.
