Parivarik Mahila Lok Adalat ( PMLA )

The National Commission for Women has evolved an innovative concept of PMLA for redressal and speedy disposal of cases under Legal Service Authority Act, 1987, which has its roots in the traditional Nyaya Panchayats.

The essential features of PMLA are amicable mutual settlement and flexibility in functioning. The NGOs in association with District Legal Aid and Advisory Board, activists, advocates and others, organize Parivarik Mahila Lok Adalats with the Commission’s financial assistance.

So far, 133 PMLAs have been held in which about 7500 cases were taken up. In the year 2002-2003, 3 PMLAs were held.
