The project for adopting a village for rendering Legal Aid through Alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanism system under the Champasari Gram Panchayat within the sub division of Siliguri, Dist- Darjeeling jointly undertaken by Indian Institute of Legal Studies and the Office of the Sub Divisonal Officere, Siligrui was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Dr. Manjula Chellur, Chief Justice, Calcutta High Court along with the Hon’ble Justice Indira Banerjee, Judge, Calcutta High Court, the Hon’ble Justice Joymalya Bagchi, Judge, Calcutta High Court along with the other eminent dignitaries like Mr. Tapash Kumar Sarkar, Hon’ble Sabhadipati, Siliguri Mahukuma Parishad, Mr. Manijit Mandal, Ld. District & sessions Judge, Darjeeling, Mr. Manoj Verma, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Siligrui Metropolitan Police, mr. Anurag Srivastava, IAS, District Magistrate, Darjeeling, Mr. Rajanvir Singh Kapur, IAS, SDO, Siliguri and Shri. Joyjit Choudhury, Hon’ble Chairman, IILS. A group of tribal performers dressed in bright coloured and traditional wears welcoming the Dignitaries with the energetic beats of the drums and soulful singing and dance was a beautiful sight for all. After welcoming the dignitaries on the dias, during the time of presenting the bouquets, Mrs. Sanghita Chick Barik, the Pradhan of the Champasari Gram Panchayat was requested to present the bouquet to the Hon’ble Cjief Justice, Calcutta High Court as mark of representing women empowerment which was very much appreciated by the Chief Justice. Lighting of the Holy Lamp by the Chief Guest followed by the other dignitaries with the students of Indian Institute of Legal Studies chanting the Sanskrit Slokas in the background along with the purifying sound of the “Shanka”. With the permission of the President of the session, the program continued. Firstly, Shri. Joyjit Choudhury, Hon’ble Chairman, Indian Institute of Legal Studies presented the theme to the august house. He took the initiative to speak to the gathering in Bengali so that the message and bonafide intention behind our endeavour of undertaking the said project would reach the common people. He emphasised the importance of catering legal awareness through the medium of ADR, by way of adopting a village at Champasari, for providing free legal service every Saturday, cases shall be indentified so as to provide speedy justice. Disputes shall be resolved, through this noble cause outside the court purview. Then, Mr.Tapas Kumar Sarkar, Hon’ble Sabhadhipati expressed that it is a historical day for all of us since a lot of people in the village are ignorant of the legal aspects of any case. The underprivileged rarely avail the legal help in its logical way. Hence, there is a need to spread awareness and help the villages in the vicinity of North Bengal, through the medium of ADR mechanism. Mr. Manoj Kumar Verma, IPS, Commissioner, Siliguri Metropolitan Police said that it is a red letter day for all of us as in collaboration with Indian Institute of Legal Studies, the office of the Sub Divisional Officer, Siliguri and members of the Civil Administration Service shall find a mechanism where the common people in general will benefit in a way that is expected from us. We aim to provide speedy justice at the lowest expenditure. Manojit Mandal, Ld. District and Sessions Judge, Darjeeling expressed that ADR can be availed through arbitration, Lok Adalat and Conciliation. It is better to adopt ADR rather than the traditional judicial process as it is not only quicker and cheaper, but resolves disputes in a lengthy procedure of the courts. Such processes are the need of the hour. Mr. Anurag Srivastava, IAS, District Magistrate Darjeeling said that ADR is an effective way of justice delivery. We need to cater to the needs of the people by providing them the required knowledge. Land Acquisition cases can be also resolved more effectively. This shall give impetus to the justice delivery system. Then, it was the time for the presidential address by the Hon’ble Justice Joymalya Bagchi. He expressed that this attempt is a great one on the part of the legal fraternity.Cynical comment of Bankim Chandra Chatopadhyay, “The law courts are the playgrounds of the rich.” This quote needs a change. The constitutional commitment of free legal service can be fulfilled by the stakeholders of legal fraternity. The courts should come to the doors of the needy. FIRs should be forthwith registered within 72 hours. Lack of manpower, deficiency of legal infrastructure access to justice dwindles and it is a far cry. District of Darjeeling shall be a model area for fostering such services. He also recommended a weekly Lok Adalat, with the active assistance of the District and Local Authorities. Pre-conciliation meets to be held and to provide legal aid assistance to equal the social economical status of the society. The Hon’ble Justice Indira Banerjee, Judge, Calcutta High Court through her key note address expressed that under the Directive Principles of State Policy, it is the obligation of the State to ensure that no person shall be denied justice. The general notion that justice is expensive can be corrected if effective justice on assistance is provided to the prospective litigants. The legal Services Authorities Act has been enacted for providing free legal aid. Not just aiming to provide a lawyer but justice delivery system shall incorporate people from the Parliament, Executive, Judiciary and the society at large. Also, create legal awareness, impart the knowledge, and make the people of the Gram Panchayat aware of their rights and corresponding duties or liabilities. Pending cases can be shifted to the Lok Adalat, reconciliations, LSA. These can act as forum to impart speedy justice. The National LSA has recently come up with 7 specific schemes out of which one aims at providing legal assistance to persons belonging to the unorganised sectors, mentally unstable persons as these people do not know of the provisions or schemes that are in existence. Institutions can act as collaborators to provide justice. Unless we come forward no amount of statutory laws or acts shall work. The Hon’ble Dr. Manjula Chellur, Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court addressed the august house with an enthusiastic smile. She said that the people from cosmopolitan areas have a reasonable access to the legal system or gathering any information. The people of these areas have their cases only in paper, since people do not know how to go about with their problems. They need a vision, an action plan to serve the needy. Students are chosen to do this work since they have a comrade feeling, commitment, anxiety, and enthusiasm to do wonders. Like a doctor, unless he knows the problems, he cannot diagnose a patient. The lawyer needs to know how to extract correct information from his client so that he knows how to solve the problems. She suggested the formation of a “Client Counselling Committee”. We may also indulge into another issues like electricity issue, ration card, waste disposal system, gas connection, birth or death certificate and not just take up the pending cases. Last but not the least, a heart warming vote of thanks by Mr. Rajanvir Singh Kapur, IAS, SDO, Siliguri. He appreciated the participation of all the stake holders present, the role of media, the co-operation from the people. He expressed his full support to the project. He also mentioned how the students are the symbol of energy. The Inaugural ceremony was concluded with the playing of the National Anthem by the Siliguri Metropolitan Police Band. Finally, the highlight of the day, the session on disposal of identified cases through ADR mechanism system by the Hon’ble Judges presided by the Hon’ble Dr. Manjula Chellur, Chief Justice, Calcutta High Court. A dispute between two brothers regarding the family property which had been subsisting for a long time was settled amicably by the judges in front of the august house. At the end of the mediation and conciliation, the two brothers agreed to sell the family property and share the amount amongst them. The Hon’ble Chief Justice, Calcutta High Court encouraged the two brothers to shake hands and continue an amicable relationship for the sake of their deceased parents and future generations.

Mr. Rajanvir Singh Kapur, I.A.S., Hon’ble S.D.O, Siliguri was gracious enough to visit the Indian Institute of Legal Studies Campus on 2nd December 2015 and have an interactive session with the students. It turned out to be a very interesting and inspiring interaction. An open house interaction initiated by Shri. Joyjit Choudhury, Hon’ble Chairman, IILS enlightening the students about our purpose of being a part of the society - Our duty to work for the social cause as responsible members of the society. Mr. Kapur then spoke to the students about four important things: 1. NEVER MAKE EXCUSES- We should never make excuses in life meaning, we should take the responsibility for our own failures and shortcomings in our lives. We should not blame our parents, our friends or foes, relatives, school or College, work place or anyone or anything for our failures or shortcomings. We should be responsible for our actions. 2. WHAT OTHERS THINK ABOUT YOU IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS- Please do not bother about what others think about you because that is none of your business. These days, we are too worried thinking about what the other persons are thinking or would think about us. This applies to all age groups but especially to our younger generation for whom even a no reply on Whatsapp from their friends or “good friends” takes control of their heads completely. Life is bigger than just “what others think about us”. There are so many things to do in life instead of wasting our precious time and energy on baseless issues. 3. VISUALISE YOUR GOALS IN LIFE AND PLAN THEM- We should visualize our goals in life i.e., to visualize the position, status or place where we would like or want ourselves to be in five years from now or maybe ten years from now. Having a vision plus a plan to guide us through our journey to our destinations equals to success and satisfaction in life. 4. DO WHAT YOU LIKE- Lastly, after visualizing and planning our goals in life, we should do what we like. Meaning, deciding for ourselves what is suitable, appropriate or good for us. No shifting of our responsibilities and obligations. Mr. Kapur in his conclusion to his address suggested a one day camp/ visit for the students to the offices of the various Departments under his jurisdiction to observe the procedures and manner of their working. The interactive session proved to be a fruitful one as in, the students seemed to have listened and understood well what both Chairman Sir and Mr. Kapur wished to place across the students. The session ended with a vote of thanks and presentation of a memento to Mr. Kapur by the senior most batch as a sign of appreciation and love.

This project shall be undertaken by the students and faculties of the Indian Institute of Legal Studies. PROPOSED AREAS: Champasari Gram Panchayat is an area under the Sub-division of Siliguri, Matigara Block in the District of Darjeeling.

Dagapur Tea Estate 3. Mohorgong & Gulma tea Estate. POST OFFICE - Pradhan Nagar PIN CODE - 734003 SCHOOLS - 1. Delhi Public School. 2. Mahbert High School 3. Techno India Group School COLLEGE - Siliguri Institute of Technology. HIGH SCHOOLS - 1. Ila Pal Choudhury Tr High School 2. Amiyo pal Choudhury High School 3. Parama Nanda Nepali High School 4. Salbari High School WHY CHAMPASARI GP HAS BEEN CHOSEN? It is a region with diversified population. It is indeed of immense importance to render assistance to the people of this area as it is too remote from the town and people cannot avail the court facilities easily because the Court having jurisdiction over this region is situated at a far distance. In view of the increasing crime rate in that area owing to the absence of such prompt legal assistance, it is felt that Champasari GP would be the appropriate area to be rendered free legal aid and be declared as free litigation village. As legal aid is not at the reach of all men residing at remote places, thus is this proposal for setting up of a legal aid camp so that all necessary legal assistance can be provided to the needy. Free Legal Services Authorities Act is an act to constitute legal services authorities to provide free and competent legal services to the weaker sections of the society to ensure that opportunities for securing justice are not denied to any citizen by reason of economic or other disabilities and to organise Lok Adalats to secure that the operation of the legal system promotes justice on a basis of equal opportunity. Legal Services Authorities are statutory bodies constituted in the states of India by the Legal Services Authorities Act 1987, as enshrined by article 39(a) of the Constitution of India, for providing free legal services for the citizens. These authorities give free legal aid to a person if he/she is not capable of bearing the expenditure. This includes appointing a lawyer in case the person is a defendant in a case. These authorities periodically organize 'lok-adalats' (Hindi for People's Court) for out-of-the-court settlement of the cases (under provision of the law). MODE OF RESEARCH: Five group of students each group consisting of six students each group headed by one Assistant Professor of Law of Indian Institute of Legal Studies. The students would be responsible for collecting primary data and secondary data of the locality. The students headed by teachers will visit each and every house located within that jurisdiction every Saturday and Sunday. They will maintain a register and their problems would be identified and after making proper verification and scrutinizing each and every individual case, the respective parties would be requested to visit the Institute preferably between 3.30pm to 5.30pm during weekdays and with the active help of the local advocates, para lawyers the problem would be resolved amicably by and between the parties. If the matter is not settled amicably, then the matter shall be referred to the Court of Law having jurisdiction for such determination and adjudication with the help of the nominated lawyers. The Institute shall take utmost care and give such endeavour to dispose of the matter at the earliest possible way by giving free legal counseling and the entire expenditure would be borne by the college in this regard. COUNSELING CENTRE AND INFRASTRUCTURE: The primary counseling centre or legal aid clinic would be functional from the Institute itself. A room in the campus has been earmarked for such clinic and the clinic shall be provided with chairs, tables, telephones, papers and stationery items/articles and one computer with printer to save such data and prepare the day to day activity report. This clinic shall be attended by each teachers of the Institute rotationally and final year law students would be responsible to run such legal aid clinic as para lawyers. The clinic shall be operational from 9am to 6pm.
