Justice Delivery At Doorstep: Ministry Of Law And Justice Launches Pan-India Special Campaign

NEW DELHI: The Preamble to the Indian Constitution recognizes ‘Justice' as the primary deliverable to be secured for its citizens. The cornerstone of a robust and vigorous democracy is that every citizen is not only guaranteed justice, but that such justice is also equitable. This requires the state to foster an environment in which justice is regarded as a citizen-centric service rather than a sovereign function. The global epidemic has highlighted the importance of Legal Aid Institutions in alleviating people's suffering. With this in view, the Department of Justice and NALSA have launched a unique pan-India campaign on September 17th, 2021, to mainstream legal assistance and make the aspiration of equal access to justice a reality for all citizens.

As the country celebrates “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav,” the Department of Justice initiated the “Ek Pahal” drive across the nation from September 17th to October 2nd to urge widespread registration under Tele-Law. Tele Law efficiently delivers pre-litigation guidance/consultation to beneficiaries by Panel Lawyers via a vast network including 51,434 Common Service Centres in 50,000 Gram Panchayats in 633 districts across 34 States and UTs.

NALSA as well as State Legal Services Authorities have worked tirelessly to establish a solid framework for legal aid delivery and citizen empowerment by offering proximal, affordable, and timely justice to all citizens, particularly the needy and impoverished. On September 17, 2021, NALSA initiated a Pan-India Special Campaign to Increase Legal Awareness through its country-wide organizational framework. The standouts of this initiative also include deployment of 185 Mobile Vans and other vehicles to showcase motion pictures as well as documentaries on the Access to Justice programme, the holding of 4100 Legal Aid Clinics to provide pre-litigation / legal advice to common citizens with the assistance of 37,000 Panel Lawyers and Para-Legal Volunteers, and the holding of village-level legal aid awareness programmes in 672 districts.

Door-to-door campaigns, banner displays on legal services, road shows, and nukkad nattak were held, eliciting an enthusiastic response from more than 14.85 lakh citizens.

This collaborative effort by the Department of Justice and NALSA has marked a watershed moment in the process of advancing inclusive governance; advocating the cause of providing voice to the voiceless; and accomplishing the goal of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, and Sabka Nyaya.'
