  4. Key Facts: LLok Adalats have been given statutory status under the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987 The award (decision) made by the Lok Adalats is deemed to be a decree of a civil court and is final and binding on all parties and no appeal against such an award lies before any court of law, but they are free to initiate litigation by approaching the court of appropriate jurisdiction by filing a case by following the required procedure, in exercise of their right to litigate. R. AGRAWAL

  5. How they operate? Lok Adalat is a non-adversarial system, whereby mock courts (called Lok Adalats) are held by the State Authority, District Authority, Supreme Court Legal Services Committee, High Court Legal Services Committee, or Taluk Legal Services Committee. They are held periodically for exercising such jurisdiction as they determine These are usually presided over by retired judges, social activists, or other members of the legal profession. R. AGRAWAL

  6. How they operate? The Lok Adalat shall not decide the matter so referred at its own instance, instead the same would be decided on the basis of the compromise or settlement between the parties. L The members shall assist the parties in an independent and impartial manner in their attempt to reach amicable settlement of their dispute. R. AGRAWAL

  7. Key Facts: There is no court fee payable when a matter is filed in a Lok Adalat. If a matter pending in the court of law is referred to the Lok Adalat and is settled subsequently, the court fee originally paid in the court on the complaints/petition is also refunded back to the parties. R. AGRAWAL

  8. Key Facts: The persons deciding the cases in the Lok Adalats are called the Members of the Lok Adalats, they have the role of statutory conciliators only and do not have any judicial role; therefore they can only persuade the parties to come to a conclusion for settling the dispute outside the court in the Lok Adalat and shall not pressurize or coerce any of the parties to compromise or settle cases or matters either directly or indirectly. The disputing parties plead their case themselves in Lok Adalats. No advocate or pleader is allowed, even witnesses are not examined R. AGRAWAL

  9. AADHAAR MUST FOR WEB-ACCESS TO SURVEY OF INDIA MAPS The Survey of India, the country's oldest scientific organisation and official maker of maps, has set up a web portal called Nakshe that allows 3,000 of its 7,000 maps to be downloaded for free. Key facts: To download the maps, one would require to provide their Aadhaar number The Sol maps-prepared for defence and civilian purposes-are considered a standard reference for the shape, extent and geographic features of the country. The maps will make it easier for residents of villagers and panchayats to readily access information. Currently, organisations and people who want specific maps need to fill forms and sometimes visit the Sol. R. AGRAWAL
