MEDIATION BEST TO REDRESS GRIEVANCES
HAJIPUR: “Solution to problems and disputes through mediation is deep rooted in India social culture. There is now the need to take the mediation process from conference rooms to village chaupals,”said justice of Patna high court HK Srivastava, on Saturday here at an awareness program organized by the district legal services authority. Srivastava is inspecting judge of Hajipur civil court also.
Speaking on the occasion, Srivastava stressed, that mediation should be to such an extent that solutions should be arrived between litigants. That solution should come out mutually and naturally for ever lasting harmony in relationship.
“I advice the judicial fraternity as well as lawyers and mediators to take the legal mediation process to village chaupals where hundreds of villagers assemble and discuss community issues’ he said, adding, “Awareness on the benefits of legal mediation must be known to all and sundry”.
“This is a mutual process and mediators should try to strike a chord in the hearts of litigants to reach an amicable and mutual solution and compromise”, he added. Before him, DK Sharma, district and session judge (DJ) of Vaishali, said the process to sort out disputes through proper mediation has yielded good results in Vaishali.
