Motto of the Legal Services Act Free legal aid is essential to the administration of justice. Under the Legal Services Authorities Act 1987, legal services authorities were established to ensure justice for all, regardless of financial or other obstacles under the law, and to achieve this objective, Lok-Adalat was established.  Under the motto „Access to Justice for All,“ judicial authorities have the capacity to reform the current environment in India, which consists of poor and vulnerable layers who are discriminated against and deprived of their rights. Therefore, one of the objectives of this decree is to ensure access to justice for all through the traditional Lok-Adalat process. · The permanent Lok-Adalat deals with public services. Important provisions of the Law on Legal Services Authorities Following the entry into force of the Legal Services Authorities Act 1987, the Legal Aid Implementation Committee (CILAS) no longer exists and legal aid matters are now regulated by law.  Chapter IV of the Act deals with criteria and entitlement to legal services. Articles 12 and 13 deal with the criteria for the provision of legal services and the right to such services.  Recently, in connection with the escalating population, the number of case registrations has also increased rapidly, which is of great concern to the judicial administration and is also presented as one of the greatest challenges for the Indian judicial system. In this context, it is considered that the Lok-Adalat, under Chapter V, which has been specified in Articles 19 to 22 of the Act, are the enabling articles to reach out to the courts in order to reduce the burden on the courts.
