Gram Nyayalaya


Rakesh Chandra

The burden of cases is increasing day by day on the Courts of all sorts all over India. Whether it be the Apex Court or the lower Judiciary, the heat is on the lawmakers to break the ice. In order to provide succour to the litigants, the successive governments have tried to address this menacing problem by adopting various measures. Alternate Dispute Redressal mechanism is one of the most potent weapon in this regard. After the failure of the Nyaya Panchayat system due to various reasons, the concepts of Lok Adalats, Consumer Forums, various kinds of dispute redressal forums like Telephone Adalats, Vidyut Upbhokta Adalats etc., Conciliation Forums established in various Courts, and Arbitration Forums, came out of embryonic stage and are in practice now. But the Government's ultimate aim to provide justice at the doorstep of the litigant was a dream yet to be fulfilled. In this direction, taking into consideration Law Commission's recommendations and previous experiences, the Govt. of India introduced the concept of Gram Nyayalayas at the grassroot level. This paper intends to study the various aspects of the Gram Nyayalays Act and also pinpoints its weaknesses and strengths.
