    ADR Society NUJS

    from Kolkata, West Bengal


India has a backlog of 3.2 crore cases. It's going to take 464 years to get all the pending disputes resolved. The courts are clearly overburdened. We need to emphasize more on alternative methods of dispute resolution. Mediation is one of them. It is a type of dispute resolution method where an independent third party is appointed and the parties try to resolve the dispute in a collaborative way.

The funds would be used for organizing an Indian Mediation Week. The sole objective of Indian Mediation Week is to grow awareness, knowledge and use of mediation across different parts of India. Mediation has proved to be a successful and cost-effective alternative to going to Court around the world. It saves time, money and important relationships. Mediators do not make decisions or judgments, instead they quickly and expertly help people in conflict to reach their own agreement together.  The biggest challenge mediation faces in India,  is that people are unaware of its existence or, in the alternative, misunderstand it's concept.

A mediation week will bring together all the major stakeholders of the mediation community on a common platform and highlight the benefits of this highly effective process to the general public. It is not just a 7 day event, but the beginning of a journey of taking India back to its original method of dispute  resolution: Suljhao, Magar Pyar Se.

This mediation week is undertaken by the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences along with different organizations.
