    Lok Adalats is no substitute to Regular courts which conduct full fledged Trial, providing an opportunity keeping in view of Principles of Natural Justice, Article 14, 21 of the Constitution of India. Unless Trial is conducted especially in criminal cases even compoundable offences of Criminal cases it will be open of pandemic of abatement to commit crime by notorious habitual Crimes if an compoundable offence is compounded by the Lok Adalat, Notorious Criminals threaten victims to compromise criminal case and there will be Anarchy prevail on account of high percentage of increase of crime rate. I suggest the The Chief Justice of India other Justices & the Government of India,& all State Governments to oppose compound of even compoundable Criminal offences so that ” AN UNPUNISHED CRIMINAL MAKES CIVILIZED SOCIETY VICARIOUSLY GUILTY”. I request to refer to Lok Adalat Matrimonial disputes for speedy disposal by way of compromise so that break up or make up Family ties will be decided at super fast that will have peace in the Society. Matrimonial disputes high raise in India has women have been Economically independent they do have their own inclination that may not be liked by Men that lead to break down of Marriages. Matrimonial cases are prolonged decades children will become orphan they will become vagabond that lead to unrest in the country. I have no objection civil cases, cheque bounce cases may refer to Lok Adalat for speedy settlement so that pendency of cases may come down. I thank supreme Court for setting up Lok Adalat Trial courts to supreme Court to settle speedy settlement of cases. I, Kolla Gangadhar, Advocate, The President, DEMOCRATIC LAWYERS FORUM, INDIA.
