Lok Adalats held by the Delhi State Legal Service Authority (DSLSA) on July 2014 cleared 10,309 cases which were pending at various district courts of Delhi.

It was a significant step towards clearing the massive backlog of cases, though it is only a fraction of pending cases as there is over 6.8 lakh pending cases across all district courts in the Capital.

National Judicial Data Grid which is a live portal for accessing data on case disposal at various district courts across the country, revealed that 17,347 cases were disposed of last month by all district courts in Delhi. Of those, 4,177 were civil and 13,170 were criminal cases.

Lok Adalats, a lesser-known alternate dispute resolution mechanism is organized in all 11 districts of Delhi on second Saturday of every month. It is presided over by judges or retired judges of district courts along with associate members.

On Saturday (July 14th, 2018) Lok Adalat was conducted under the guidance of patron-in-chief Delhi High Court Chief Justice Gita Mittal.

As per Delhi State Legal Service Authority press release, the settlement amount was around ₹37.20 crore and 236 cases of Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal (MACT) were settled, for which Lok Adalat Benches of all districts of Delhi were constituted at Patiala House Courts, here leading to the settlement of ₹18.77 crore. Lok Adalats were also organized at the Delhi High Court, in which 20 cases were disposed of leading to the settlement amount of ₹1.27 crore.
