NAGPUR: A unique idea has hit upon the organisers of the Lok Adalat, who would be now holding it subject-wise or separately for identical cases.
The Nagpur District Legal Service Authority (DLSA) has decided to conduct Lok Adalats throughout the year from now onwards. It would begin from later this month and continue till October.
The event would be held under the aegis of National Legal Service Authority and Maharashtra State Legal Service Authority.
The DLSA had conducted special Lok Adalat for pre-litigation disputes on premises of Nagpur District and Sessions Court recently.
Out of 200 disputes, 76 were amicably settled as they were related to excess billing and telephone recovery bills, Civil Judge and Secretary DLSA, KIshore Jaiswal said.
The first event will be organised on February 14 on cheque bounce and bank-related cases, particularly under Section 138 of Negotiable Instrument (NI) Act.
On March 14, the Adalat will resolve land acquisition cases while on April 11, labour and family matters would be settled.
On June 13, issues related to motor accident and insurance claim cases would be taken up.
On July 11, electricity, water, telephone and public utility disputes would be settled.
Consumers disputes and tax matters will be settled on August 8 while criminal compoundable matters will be taken up on September 12.
On October 10, traffic, petty and municipal matters would be heard.
