This was the third consecutive sitting in the district after Painavu and Vazhathoppe.

On Saturday, 24 cases were settled; 11 cases have been shifted for next hearing; and one case each has been forwarded for reports from Jagratha Samithi and police respectively.

Two cases have been referred to the Legal Service Society for free legal aid.

In 15 cases, parties were not present.

Most of the cases considered related to property disputes, family matters, agreement breach, and dispute among neighbours.

Ms. Bhaskaran said that the next sitting of the commission in the district would be held in November.
