The National Legal Services Authority (NALSA) has decided to conduct 2nd National Lok Adalat at all levels, from the Supreme Court to Taluk courts, on April 12.

As part of the programme, the Metropolitan Legal Services Authority, Hyderabad, has conducted a “Pre-Lok Adalat” at the criminal courts complex, Nampally, Saturday morning. A conciliation sitting for both the parties for the offences under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instrument Act (dishonour of cheque for insufficient funds in bank account etc.) was organized by the authority.                             

NALSA was constituted under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987, to provide free legal services to the weaker sections of the society and to organize Lok Adalats for amicable settlement of disputes. In every state, State Legal Services Authority was constituted to give effect to the policies and directions of NALSA and to give

free legal services to the people and conduct Lok Adalats in the state. In every district, District Legal Services Authority has been constituted to implement Legal services programmes in the district.

Following NALSA’s proposal, the AP High Court Legal Services Committee took steps for organizing the 2nd National Lok Adalat on April 12 keeping in view the pending civil and compoundable criminal cases. Persons willing to settle their pending disputes in the Court should inform their list of cases to the High Court Legal Services Committee as soon as possible.
