Union Law Minister Launches Mobile Apps Offering Free Legal Advice

Union Law MinisterRavi Shankar Prasad on February 19, 2019, launched two mobile applications to offer easy access to justice and free legal advice across the country.

Launching the Nyaya Bandhu app and the Tele-Law online dashboard app, the minister commented that the “Digital India is designed to empower ordinary Indians with the power of technology.”

The Nyaya Bandhu app is aimed at enhancing 'access to justice' for marginalised sections of the society and fulfilment of the State's Constitutional obligation of providing 'free legal aid' for all.

The app allows marginalised individuals to seek quality legal advice and aid by connecting with advocates who have volunteered their time and services on the platform. It is believed that the platform will promote the delivery of pro bono legal services in the country.

The initiative is an extension of the Pro Bono Legal Services Programme of the Department of Justice, Ministry of Law & Justice.

The other mobile application, Tele-Law online dashboard has been launched in furtherance of the Tele-Law scheme, which was launched last year.

The scheme was formulated to connect needy litigants with a panel of lawyers from the State Legal Services Authorities. The new online dashboard mobile app aids in this process, which includes video conferencing, chat and telephone facilities to help the litigant connect with their lawyer.

Both the mobile applications can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
