Disruption of power TPDDL, which provides electricity to customers in north and northwest Delhi, would hold a special 'Lok Adalat' on February 12 to deal with energy theft and termination issues on the spot, according to a statement released on Friday. The special court, which will be conducted in two locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is being arranged in partnership with the Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA). The session would be held in both online and offline modes at permanent Lok Adalat on Mata Sundari Lane and Tata Power-EAC DDL's Office in Rohini's Sector-3.
All plaintiffs have been asked to register before to the Lok Adalat by phoning – 19124 or sending an email to "mailto:email@example.com"firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the statement. The Lok Adalat will hear matters that are either unresolved or have yet to be filed in any court. Consumers who want to settle their power theft cases can come in person or send a representative with authorization letters, picture IDs, and a copy of their stolen bill, according to the official statement. Lok Adalats Lok Adalats are held by NALSA and other legal support organisations. Lok Adalat is an alternate dispute resolution process. It is a place where disputes/cases that are currently in court or at the pre-litigation stage be settled/compromised peacefully.
Even though there is no mechanism for an appeal against a Lok Adalat award, all parties are allowed to commence litigation by contacting the court of proper jurisdiction, filing a complaint, and following the requisite process, to exercise their right to sue. When a matter is filed before a Lok Adalat, there is no judicial fee to pay. The court money initially paid in the court on the complaints/petition is also given back to the parties if a matter sitting in the court of law is referred to the Lok Adalat and is concluded later. Representatives of the Lok Adalats are the people who decide cases in the Lok Adalats; they only act as statutory adjudicators and do not have any judicial powers; as a result, they can only convince the parties to agree in the Lok Adalat to settle the dispute outside of court; they cannot pressurise or compel any of the stakeholders to make concessions or settle situations or matters either explicitly or implicitly. The Lok Adalat will not resolve the subject on its initiative; rather, it will decide the matter based on a compromise or settlement between both parties.
