National lok adalats dispose 8.80 lakh cases

 Around 8.80 lakh cases -- related to land acquisition, revenue and rural employment scheme MNREGA -- involving an amount of Rs 200 crore were disposed by National Lok Adalat held across India.



New Delhi: Around 8.80 lakh cases -- related to land acquisition, revenue and rural employment scheme MNREGA -- involving an amount of Rs 200 crore were disposed by National Lok Adalat held across India.

Of these, about 69,000 were pending matters and 8.10 lakh were at pre-litigation stage and had not reached the courts, an official release said today.

National Lok Adalat were held pan-India yesterday.

There will be no further appeal in these cases, it said, adding that it would have a significant impact on the judicial system.

On the other hand, settlement of cases at pre-litigation stage would mean that, these would not reach the courts.

This was the second in a series of National Lok Adalats which are being organised every month on a specific subject matter with an aim to reduce pendency and also prevent additional litigation in the courts, where settlements are possible, it said.
