A mediation centre is being set up at the High Court to help speedy disposal of cases and easy delivery of justice,” he said while speaking at a training programme organised for mediators at the International Centre for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ICADR), Hyderabad.

“Besides setting up the mediation centre on High Court premises, the facilities for mediation will be enhanced at all the district courts. I will personally visit the district courts to oversee the process and popularise mediation, added Chief Justice Bhosale.

Observing that mediation has not developed as expected he said with directions and support from the Supreme Court, the concept of mediation will be taken to every nook and corner of the state.

“Mediators will be identified in Telangana and AP, and after thorough training, they will be entrusted with the responsibility of imparting training in all districts including remote areas,” the Chief Justice added.

ICADR regional centre in-charge JLN Murthy informed that the centre has imparted training to more than 500 judges in mediation and alternative dispute resolution and is planning to take up regular monthly training sessions in all districts to impart training for judges and advocates among others.
