Towards amicable settlement

  • Disputes are brought to an amicable settlement as there is no appeal in the cases settled through the National Lok Adalat.

  • It also saves time and money by resolving disputes amicably.

  • At the same time, the settlement of disputes is a win-win situation for both the parties and the pending cases are settled expeditiously.

  • Also, in cases settled in the Lok Adalat, both the parties benefit as the amount of court fee is refunded as per the law.

  • Oral evidence, cross-examination, lengthy arguments are avoided.

  • As there is no appeal against the judgment of the Lok Adalat, a single decision excludes one from the lengthy judicial process.

  • Judgments in the Lok Adalat can be enforced through a court of law, just like a court order.
