The Matrimonial Lok Adalats on Sunday had 100 percent participation from people having cases pending in such disputes.

A total of 67 cases were listed in all district courts of which 12 were settled in a day, while 27 were referred to the third Sunday of the month.

“A separate day for matrimonial disputes gives one ample time to discuss the issue in detail. The atmosphere is very cordial,” said Mona (name changed), a litigant.

As many as 20 cases were listed at Karkardooma court out of which six were settled and five were referred to a next date. At Patiala House courts, of the 14 cases listed five were resolved.

“People have accepted matrimonial courts as a forum to resolve their disputes. We are focusing on creating awareness about these courts to reduce the pendency in trial courts,” said Sanjay Sharma, project officer, Delhi Legal Services Authority (DLSA).
