A pre-litigation centre will be opened in the Bidar District Court on June 1. Shashikala Urankar, Principal District and Sessions Judge, said these centres would help families resolve issues like marital discord through amicable settlements. The centre would act as a facilitator for parties that want to settle issues through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. K. Thiyagarajan, Superintendent of Police, said such centres would reduce the burden of the Police Department.
