Addressing a news conference here Tuesday, Secretary District Legal Service Authority (DLSA) Pooja Gupta, who is also the Sub Judge Ramban said that due to the prevailing Covid restrictions and to avoid the rush pre-LokAdalat sessions would be held once a week from next week but daily sessions would be held during the last week preceding September 11 in all courts of Ramban district.
She said that the aim of the LokAdalats was to reduce the pendency of disputes at pre-litigation and post-litigation stages.
A National LokAdalat would be held at the Court Complex Ramban on September 11 for pre-litigation and post-litigation to reduce the pendency of cases in the courts, Gupta said.

Gupta said that the Chairman DLSA Ramban, who is also the Principal and District Sessions Judge Ramban Abdul HaqZargar, had exhorted all the litigants to settle their disputes in this National LokAdalat amicably through conciliation and mediation for which they should approach the concerned court and get their case fixed in the National LokAdalat.
