Lok Adalats: Saving time, money
Agra: Lok Adalats held periodically in the districts have emerged as a viable option for providing speedy relief to victims in family-related disputes and other minor legal hassles, Agra district judge Shashi Kant said Sunday.
The judge was presiding over a symposium on legal literacy and awareness, at the Agra civil court complex here. He said litigants save time and money when they take the Lok Adalat route.
Shashi Kant also felicitated four young couples whose problems were settled at the Lok Adalat.
The UCO bank sorted out disputes worth Rs.6 crore through the Lok Adalat, and recovered Rs.2 crore.
There are 25 para-legal volunteers working in each tehsil of Agra. In 2013 alone, 150 family disputes were resolved through this mechanism.
