Significance of the AI-based Lok Adalat

In India, the number of pending cases is increasing over the years. Covid-19 pandemic induced lockdown has further led to addition of pending cases. Recently, in Bihar, district court gave its verdict in a land dispute case after 108 years. It was one of the oldest pending cases in India. According to NITI Aayog report, it would take an around 324 years to dispose of all current pending cases in country. NITI Aayog report further states that, 75% to 97% of justiciable problems do not reach to the Courts. Thus, 5 million to 40 million people never reach to Court every month.
