Resolving disputes on the basis of compromise increases trust: Pandey

Monday, 27 May 2024 | PNS | Lohardaga

Principal District and Sessions Judge Co-Chairman District Legal Services Authority Arvind Kumar Pandey, while addressing the mediators in the training program on Referral Judges and Mediators on Saturday, said that dispute resolution through compromise increases the confidence of the common people in the system. Those lawyers who think that their case ends after settlement, they should know that due to quick justice after settlement, the confidence of the common people increases and they approach the court with more cases. While explaining the basic rules of mediation, PDJ Arvind Kumar Pandey said that the mediator should work with patience. Both the parties should be heard separately and in a coordinated manner, only then a conclusion should be reached. 


Addressing the arbitrators, panel advocates and PLB present in the Dalsa Auditorium located in the Civil Court complex, he said that there is a need to be alert about the increasing accidents due to motor vehicles. Accidents do not happen at anyone's invitation, but there are many provisions made in the Motor Claims Act to compensate for the losses incurred after an accident. For example, after the death of a child below 12 years of age in a road accident, his dependent gets a fixed amount of Rs 5,00000.  In case of hit and run, Rs 2,00,000 is paid in case of death and Rs 50,000 in case of serious injury. Addressing the participants present, he also said that only if they know the law better, they will be able to provide its benefits to the common people. Motor accident claim cases pending in courts continue for many years which makes no sense. 


By merely reading the judicial decisions of the Honorable Supreme Court, Sarla Verma and Pranay Sethi, common people will also know how to calculate compensation. Earlier, First District and Additional Sessions Judge Akhilesh Kumar Tiwari explained in detail how the compensation to be given to the dependents of the deceased in case of a motor accident is calculated. Dalsa Secretary Rajesh Kumar, while addressing the present participants, informed that provisions have been made for compensation in road accidents in which a deceased or injured person is hit by a vehicle and runs away. To get compensation, one has to apply to the SDM. The format of which is provided free of cost to the needy by Dalsa. Mediators, LADCS, to spread maximum public awareness, identify drug addicts day and night, and provide them treatment and rehabilitation, to ensure compliance with the recent order passed by the Honorable Jharkhand High Court in a PIL regarding de-addiction. 


Called upon PLB and panel advocates. He presented the details of various works being done by Dalsa before PDJ Lohardaga. Apart from others in the program, Chief Justice, Family Court Shri Subhash, First District Judge Akhilesh Kumar Tiwari, Second District Judge Neerja Asri, Senior Civil Judge Archana Kumari, CGM Krishnakant Mishra, Dalsa Secretary Rajesh Kumar, Civil Court Registrar Amit Kumar Gupta were also present.
