Tackling issues: The mobile legal unit in operation in Mysore on Monday.

MYSORE: Karnataka State Legal Service Authority (KSLSA) which aims to create awareness among the people on basic legal aspects has envisaged a novel way of achieving this. It has pressed the Mobile Lok Adalat and Legal Literacy Chariot into service to expand its activities. This mobile unit will tour the State and help the people in increasing their knowledge of basic legal aspects.

Mobile Lok Adalat and Legal Literacy Chariot, which is a brainchild of Supreme Court Judge Cyriac Joseph has toured Bamboo Bazaar, Kurgalli and Ilwala villages of Mysore taluk.

The Legal Service Authority is a creation of Parliament’s mandate, which strives to secure justice to all citizens in accordance with the Constitution.

According to Judge Ganapathi, Mr. Cyriac Joseph launched this legal awareness programme at Bidar in January and after achieving its purpose in Bidar, Gulbarga and Kodagu districts, it has now entered Mysore. “There was good response in Piriyapatna, Hunsur, H.D. Kote, Nanjangud and T. Narsipura to the mobile unit,” he said.

Lok adalat

There is a court hall in this mobile unit, and advocates and judges who are part of this unit discuss issues and sort it out when people seek help.

“A Lok Adalat will be held inside the mobile unit on May 28,” he said.

Advocates accompanying this mobile unit will create awareness among the people on the issues in their daily life such as rights over property, registration of births, deaths and marriage, domestic violence against women, dowry-related harassment, child marriages and legal assistance extended by the Government, he said.

This unit will visit Kytamaranahalli, Mellahalli and Varakodu on Tuesday and Civic workers’ colony in Vishweshwara Nagar, Dhanagalli and Harohalli on Wednesday.

Next stop

The Mobile Lok Adalat will be entering Mandya after touring K.R. Nagar constituency, he said.
