  • The Preamble to the Constitution of India recognises ‘Justice’ as the first deliverable to be secured for its citizens.
  • The hallmark of a successful and vibrant democracy is that every citizen is not only guaranteed justice, but also that such justice is equitable.
  • This obligates the State to create an environment where justice-delivery is looked upon not as a sovereign function but as a citizen-centric service.  The global pandemic has made the role of Legal Aid Institutions more pronounced in mitigating the sufferings of people.
  • With this perspective in mind, the Department of Justice and NALSA has undertaken a special pan-India campaign on 17th September 2021 to mainstream legal aid and to actualize the aspiration of access to justice for every citizen.
  • As the nation celebrates “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav”, Department of Justice launched the “Ek Pahal /एक पहल” drive across the country from 17th September till 2nd October to encourage mass registration under Tele-Law.  The medium of Tele Law effectively provides pre-litigation advice / consultation to beneficiaries by Panel Lawyers through a huge network covering 51,434 Common Service Centres in 50,000 Gram Panchayats in 633 districts across 34 States and UTs.
