The Centre provides settlement to issues in various areas like Family disputes, Consumer disputes, Rent issues, Property disputes, Cheque issues, Motor Accident cases etc. The Centre also provides training and awareness to the people about the benefits of ADR through various awareness camps and classes.

Alternative Dispute Resolutions (ADR) is out of court settlements which are informal in nature. A Third party helps the parties who are having a dispute to settle it. They are faster, cheaper and provide privacy to the parties. ADR provides options to the parties to settle their differences in a satisfactory manner. The Courts have been affected with the problems of large pendency of cases owing to large arrears causing backlog taking many years for the case to be decided. Often the judgments are not satisfactory and cause inconveniences to both the parties. ADR has been found to be the solution to the problems affecting the judicial system. ADR mechanisms are been used effectively by Companies and other commercial establishments and have been encouraged by the Courts through Adalats.

Settlements reached by the parties through the Centre are legally valid and binding.
