Litigants could participate and resolve disputes at the mega Lok Adalat to be conducted here on November 23, according to District and Sessions Judge Jayasankaran.

The mega Lok Adalat would provide the platform to resolve disputes pending even before the Supreme Court and the High Courts. Litigants must submit a petition for participation in the Lok Adalat through their counsel.

On the stated day, orders would be passed after hearing both parties to the dispute. Cheque, hurt cases, bank accounts, hurt or injury in accidents, insurance, those involving levy of taxes by local bodies such as municipalities, TANGEDCO, Revenue Department, land acquisition and such other issues could be resolved through the Lok Adalat, Mr. Jayasankaran noted.

No appeal would lie on any issue resolved through the Lok Adalat. Even the stamp duty paid by litigants for having pursued cases before regular courts would be returned if the issues were to be settled through the Lok Adalat, Mr. Jayasankaran added. Hence litigant public could make the best use of the mega Lok Adalat to be conducted here on November 23, he urged.
