He further stated that a Lok Adalat is the best way to achieve cheap and quicker resolution of disputes. If the matter is settled during the Lok Adalat, then the court fee already paid by a party at the time of filing of a case is refunded. The disputes resolved through Lok Adalat are on the basis of mutually acceptable terms. A decision which is mutually acceptable to both the parties not only brings an end to the long-standing dispute but also puts an end to litigation forever, as there is no appeal against the decision/award made by a Lok Adalat.

Ashish Abrol stated that if any person wants his pending case to be put up in National Lok Adalat, he/she can submit an application in the respective court or in the office of Secretary, DLSA, Ludhiana.

Abrol informed that if any under trial wants to have a lawyer under free legal aid, then they can contact the DLSA, which would provide the lawyer completely free of cost.
