Mysore/Mysuru: As many as 36 warring couples who had sought divorce, got re-united at Lok Adalat, the first one this year held under the aegis of District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) at the City Courts here yesterday.

Judge Sangreshi said that 36 couples, including 27 from Mysuru city re-united after counselling. Pointing out that the Court had selected 20,753 different types of cases for settlement at the Lok Adalat, Judge Sangreshi said that however, only 7,581 cases were settled.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “36 warring couples reunite at Lok Adalat”

    Giving 50% rebate now for traffic violations, is making fool out of good citizens who paid full amount on time. Instead of punishing the defaulters, you are rewarding them with rebate. This flawed socialist model will definitely influence good citizens to delay their fines and accumulate them in the hope of future rebates. At the end, there won’t be anyone to pay full fine and the traffic police dept will be left with meagre income, and will be forced to announce another rebate program in few years.
    People with no sense of justice/dharma are admitted and promoted everywhere in the name of affirmative action, thats why this is happening.
