GRAM NYAYALAYA ACT 2009 PDF

Equality and justice are indisputably two key facets of the idea of a modern, democratic, and constitution-adhering India. The principles of equality and justice are realized by the State apparatus through the business of administration of justice. India's judicial system is characterized by systemic problems, including corruption, delays, pendency, increasing costs, limited legal aid, and a lack of appropriately trained lawyers and judges. To overcome these problems the Law Ministry had set up Gram Nyayalays in with an aim to provide a cost-effective forum at the grass-root level for the poor living in villages to settle legal matters. It was established by the Gram Nyayalayas Act, This Act perpetuates the phenomenon of two sections of Indians - that of the better-resourced urban citizen who can afford and has access to the courts, and the other India of the impoverished - the more disconnected rural citizen, who gets primary access to forums that focus primarily on disposing of their claims, minus the application of essential safeguards of the legal process - lawyers, appeals, procedural protections, and evidentiary requirements.

A bench of Justice N. Ramana and Justice Ajay Rastogi sought response from the government on a plea seeking the implementation of the Gram Nyayalayas Act, The plea was filed by The Federation for Fast Justice, a registered society carrying out a nation-wide campaign for judicial reform and work to provide access to justice for the poor, marginalised and economically weak citizens. Appearing for the society, advocate Prashant Bhushan told the top court that the Act, which is aimed at establishing Gram Nyayalayas at the village level for speedy disposal of matters and access to justice, has not been implemented.

The plea said that non-establishment of Gram Nyayalayas frustrates statutory rights provided to citizens under the constitutional right of access to justice. Gram Nyayalayas, at the grass root levels, will provide access to justice to the most marginalised sections of society, specifically to reduce barriers to access in terms of distance, time, and associated costs. They will also reduce dependence of rural citizens on extra-judicial alternative systems of justice and reduce workload on higher tiers of judiciary, the petitioner said.

The plea has also sought direction to the Central government to provide adequate financial support for this purpose. SC issues notice on plea over lack of ''Gram Nyayalayas''.
