Mediation remains an outlier for dispute resolution despite over twenty years since a legal framework has been in place for mediation and conciliation in India. India has over twenty-five regulatory frameworks that encourage mediation-driven settlements through a host of policy instruments: both mandating and provisioning the option of mediation, as well as setting up infrastructure to facilitate mediation (court-annexed mediation, facilitation councils for MSMEs, Companies Act, to name a few).

Date: 15th June 2020

Time: 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

In this #DakshaDialogue on Mainstreaming Mediation in India, a distinguished panel will be in conversation with Chitra Narayan, Advocate, Mediator and Faculty at Daksha Fellowship.


  • Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Judge, Supreme Court of India
  • Justice Gita Mittal, Chief Justice, High Court of Jammu and Kashmir
  • Mr. Sriram Panchu, Senior Advocate, Madras High Court

This panel will discuss the importance of mediation, efforts undertaken towards encouraging mediation thus far, various factors that have contributed to mediation remaining an alternative to adjudication, changing perceptions of dispute resolution as an adversarial effort, and possibilities for reform.
