By IndianMandarins- 24 Sep 2020


Commemorating the journey of its Tele-Law program (launched in 2017 to address cases at the pre-litigation stage) and keeping up with the digital India vision the Department of Justice recently released a readable collection of the real-life stories of beneficiaries titled “Reaching The Unreached - Voices Of The Beneficiaries”.

Currently encompassing 260 districts (including 115 Aspirational districts) and 29860 CSCs across 29 States & Union Territories, it has enabled advice to more than three Lakh beneficiaries in the various geographically difficult and far-flung areas.

It uncovers six categories namely fighting injustice, resolution of property disputes, relief to COVID distressed, empowering with information, overcoming procedural hurdles, and action against domestic abuse.

Specially designed to facilitate early detection, intervention and prevention of the legal problems, the Tele-Law service is proactively outreached to groups and communities through a cadre of frontline volunteers provided by NALSA and CSC- e Gov. Separate Dashboard has been developed for capturing real-time data and nature of advice rendered. In order to ensure district-level granularity in the near future, data is also being pushed to the PMO Prayas Portal.
