MEDIATION CENTRES:-

Mediation is one of the Alternative Dispute Resolution methods. Under the provisions of Sec.89 Civil Procedure Code, the Parties can settle their cases arriving at compromise with the aid of Mediators. The Role of Mediators is to guide and assist the parties to explore the possibilities of settlement and to know about the pros and cons of the litigation / settlement. The mediators neither settle the dispute nor pass the award, but they guide the parties thereby the parties may arrive at terms of settlement on their own. In the first phase, eleven (11) Mediation Centres have been established in 10 Districts and High Court Mediation Centre.  In the second phase, 13 new Mediation Centres have been established in the remaining districts in the month of July, 2010.
