As many as 345 cases on Saturday were disposed of by the National Lok Adalat which also saw disbursal of Rs 7.94 crore as compensation towards various claims. Around 1,325 cases were considered in the lok adalat. Cases of banks, recovery and check bounce were also considered in the lok adalat.
District and sessions judge Karamjit Singh Kang said, "In the lok adalat, money and time of general people has been saved. Moreover, it also helps to decrease the workload of courts."
"Following the orders of the Supreme Court, such lok adalats will be organised every month to dispose of the cases that are lying pending in the courts," he added.
Chief judicial magistrate KK Singla said, "Cases related to revenue, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Gurantee Act (MGNREGA) and land will be considered on March 14; and cases related to labour and family disputes will be considered on April 11." Singla said the decisions of lok adalat were permanent and the decisions could not be challenged in any court.
Additional district and sessions judge Bishan Saroop and chief judicial magistrate Rajiv Kumar were also present.
