With the sincere efforts of all concern, the field of mediation & conflict resolution has began to gain momentum both within the courts and among the litigants as well.
As of now, only one aforesaid training programme has been conducted in our State, but more trained personnel in the filed would be needed to effectively carry out the mediation project in the State of Uttarakhand, as in near future, the full-fledged mediation centres are to be established in all the 13 districts of our State.

A training programme for the Advocates who will act as Mediators in near future is proposed to be held at UJALA very soon. In this training programme, in all 28 Mediators/Advocates selected from the 08 districts of the State, shall participate. The MCPC is being requested to provide trainers for the aforesaid training programme.
In near future, the sensitization programmes for the referral judges and further continuous training programmes for the Referral Judges and the selected Advocates from all the 13 districts of Uttarakhand State are proposed to be organized under the guidance of MCPC.
